> +Device-Mapper Logging
> +=====================
> +The device-mapper logging code is used by some of the device-mapper
> +RAID targets to track regions of the disk that are not consistent.
> +A region (or portion of the address space) of the disk may be
> +inconsistent because a RAID stripe is currently being operated on or
> +a machine died while the region was being altered.  In the case of
> +mirrors, a region would be considered dirty/inconsistent while you
> +are writing to it because the writes need to be replicated for all
> +the legs of the mirror and may not reach the legs at the same time.
> +Once all writes are complete, the region is considered clean again.
> +
> +There is a generic logging interface that the device-mapper RAID
> +implementations use to perform logging operations (see
> +dm_dirty_log_type in include/linux/dm-dirty-log.h).  Various different
> +logging implementations are available and provide different
> +capabilities.  The list includes:

> +The "disk" log type
> +-------------------
> +This log implementation commits the log state to disk.  This way, the
> +logging state survives reboots/crashes.
> +
> +The "core" log type
> +-------------------
> +This log implementation keeps the log state in memory.  The log state
> +will not survive a reboot or crash, but there may be a small boost in
> +performance.  This method can also be used if no storage device is
> +available for storing log state.
> +
> +The "cluster-*" log types
> +-------------------------
> +These types operate in the same way as their single machine counterparts,
> +but they are cluster-aware.  This is done by forwarding most logging
> +requests to userspace, where a daemon processes the request in an ordered
> +fashion with the rest of the nodes in the cluster.  This is necessary to
> +prevent log state corruption.  (Imagine if two machines are writing to the
> +same region of a mirror.  They would both mark the region dirty, but you
> +need a cluster-aware entity that can handle properly marking the region
> +clean when they are done.  Otherwise, you might clear the region when the
> +first machine is done, not the second.)
> +
> +The structure used for communication between kernel and userspace are
> +located in include/linux/dm-log-cluster.h.  Due to the frequency,
> +diversity, and 2-way communication nature of the exchanges between
> +kernel and userspace, 'connector' is used as the interface for
> +communication.  One existing userspace implementation of the daemon
> +uses openAIS/corosync in order to communicate with guaranteed ordering
> +and delivery.  This daemon, which is capable of coherently managing log
> +state from multiple cluster machines, can be found in the LVM2 code
> +repository.  Other implementations with no association to LVM or
> +openAIS/corosync are certainly possible.
> +
> +Providing a cluster-aware logging type gives device-mapper RAID1 (and
> +potentially other RAIDs) the ability to operate in a cluster-aware
> +fashion.
