[lvm-devel] [RFC][PATCH] Add partial mode option in lvm config file



Hi,

I would like to introduce "partial_mode" option in lvm config file.
I appreciate any comments on this.


* Introduction

This patch introduces a new configuration parameter, "partial_mode",
in lvm configuration file (lvm.conf). This "partial_mode" affects
some lvm commands, which already support --partial/-P, and sets them
-P option by default.

I think that this partial mode is useful for not only trouble shooting
but also usual operation in case of device failures. For example,
lvm mirroring is used to make systems stable and keep high availability,
and LVs in VGs should be activated even if one of their legs is broken.
However, currently LVs are not activated without a partial option.

Root filesystems and other volumes using lvm have to be activated during
system boot in order to make system continue to work. I think supporting
"partial_mode" in config makes it easy, since we don't have to change
mkinitrd and rc.sysinit script for this use.

In addition, a new command line parameter, "--nopartial", is added in order
to override a configuration in a command line. This parameter is for users
who want to disable partial_mode temporarily for checking LV strictly.


* Example

When "partial_mode" is set to 1, lvm commands work as if -P or --partial
options are indicated in its command line.

  global {
    ...
    partial_mode = 1
  }


Thanks,
