Re: [linux-lvm] Local + iSCSI disks

Obviously a speed penalty...

The period between the local devices becoming available and the iSCSI volumes appearing will be potentially confusing for the LVM tools and might need some special handling depending on how your distribution manages LVM activation.

In future as LVM moves to having udev detect devices and call LVM to have them activated this should get easier.

I know I could also aggregate with the md driver and set things up to
do writes/reads to a specific disk depending on whether or not its
local, etc.  Anything like that in the LVM world?

There's the replicator target being worked on:
