Hi list,

caching the _tdata part of a thinpool works fine now. Unfortunatly with
lvchange it is not possible to change the policy (vg:dmivg,
cachepool:dmipool,thinpool:winthinpool):

# lvchange --cachepolicy cleaner dmivg/dmicache
  Operation not permitted on hidden LV dmivg/dmicache.

# lvchange --cachepolicy cleaner /dev/mapper/dmivg-winthinpool_tdata
  Operation not permitted on hidden LV dmivg/winthinpool_tdata.

# lvchange --cachepolicy cleaner dmivg/winthinpool
  Command on LV dmivg/winthinpool does not accept LV type thinpool.
Required LV types are cache cachepool .
  Command not permitted on LV dmivg/winthinpool.

The only possibility at the moment seems to change it via lowlewel
dmsetup command.

# dmsetup status dmivg-winthinpool_tdata
0 7730954240 cache 8 1458/9216 128 720896/720896 4608761 7143953 1177059
5866353 40700 761596 2993 2 metadata2 writeback 2 migration_threshold
2048 smq 0 rw -

...

How can this be done with lv*?

Tfh!
Oliver

Hi

By opening BZ  at http://bugzilla.redhat.com/  for lvm2 ;)
Seem this has got lost in various code changes.

Should be easy to add this to supported variant.

Regards

Zdenek

Thanks for fixing this! Ive tried to change now to cleaner policy, which
works fine now:

# lvchange --cachepolicy cleaner /dev/mapper/dmivg-winthinpool_tdata
  Logical volume dmivg/winthinpool_tdata changed.

Also going back to smq works:

# lvchange --cachepolicy smq /dev/mapper/dmivg-winthinpool_tdata
  Logical volume dmivg/winthinpool_tdata changed.

Thank you very much for the quick fix!

Regards,
Oliver
