Subject: [linux-lvm] [RFC PATCH] lvconvert: fix the size of log device when converting from linear to mirror
Date: Wed, 7 Jul 2021 11:20:20 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <501f846a-1d6e-e335-916a-288ab009e38e@suse.com> (raw)

When converting a large linear device to mirror with --stripes parameter

in lvconvert command, it will report the following error:



ioctl/libdm-iface.c:1895    device-mapper: reload ioctl on  (254:0)
failed: Invalid argument



and the related kernel messages:



kernel: [ 2290.698171] device-mapper: dirty region log: log device 254:1
too small: need 7078912 bytes

kernel: [ 2290.698248] device-mapper: table: 254:0: mirror: Error
creating mirror dirty log

kernel: [ 2290.698251] device-mapper: ioctl: error adding target to table

~$:lvcreate -nlv  -L27T vg

  Logical volume "lv" created.

  Volume group "vg" successfully extended



~$:lvconvert  --type mirror --mirrors 1 --stripes 3 -I256  /dev/vg/lv

  device-mapper: reload ioctl on  (254:0) failed: Invalid argument

  Failed to lock logical volume vg/lv.

  /dev/loop4 vg lvm2 a--  10.00t 10.00t

  /dev/loop5 vg lvm2 a--  10.00t 10.00t



Analysis: In kernel space the required log size depends on the whole

target device size.But in user space, the log size is calculated from

the whole target devices size divided by allocation area number, which

leads to the mismatch here.
