RE: [linux-lvm] 'snapshot' target still experimental :-(



i can confirm this. iet runs well with heavy io until you create many
snapshots. lvresize will be slow as well, though not hang. i think that

months ago.

ps, not lvm related, but if u stop iet for 5 seconds. i guess iscsi ini
will be unhappy? :P we can discuss in iet list.
