Re: [linux-lvm] copy lv from lv?



1..how to pipe two copy  together
2.i take lv as xen-guestOS's  disk. usually many  guestOS created from one lv(called template), maybe many data is readonly, so  if  so many lvs share readonly part ,and have its private data? COW save disk space, and take less time.
 
i do not think snapshot is sutable for this case.
 
thanks
