Re: [dm-devel] mirrored device with thousand of mappingtableentries



One way to achieve that is to create two linear mapped devices amd
mirror them and another two linear device to simulate the original
offsets. The last shall be mapped to the first two linear devices so the
client will continue to read and write the same offsets he was used to.

Seems a little bit complex configuration but it shall do the trick.
I will test its scalability and update of course.

BTW - 
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INTEGRITY is disabled.

According to your suggestion I need to map the non contiguous extents
into linear devices and mirror them.

But, what if I am required to preserve the original extent's offset?
Since I need to mirror an existing device with user data already on
it...

Nobody considered having a huge number of tiny mirrors reasonable or
necessary
so no attempt has been made to optimise that situation.
