Re: [dm-devel] Problem when creating snashots

Yes I really need it. I have to create a virtual network editor for my diploma project. So I have found many virtual solutions but the bestest for our project is OpenVZ. Unfortunatly, OpenVZ don't offer the copy on write with his solution, after many tests, I have found a solution based on LVM.

The main idea is to have a Virtual Private Server Core and lot of Virtual Private Server who are a snapshot of the Virtual Server Core. Now the problem is the limitation of VLM, I need more than 32 servers (32 snapshots). Will this limitation incresed in futur futur released of LVM? Or can we broke this limitation?

Have you a solution, it's relly urgent for me...

Thanks you

I'm not a native french speaker (hint!) but I assume you run out of

Yes there are limitations to the number of snapshots. For every single
snapshot we have to allocate memory for copying the chunks to the exception

Do you really need that many snapshots at the same time?
