I've created a disk pool for KVM, on a LVM Volume Group. Then I try to launch a new VM with
# virt-install --name=MyVM\
--disk pool=vg1,size=50,cache=none \
--graphics vnc \
It creates the Logical Volume in the VG and launches the VM install process.
I've been running a simple server as networked storage for keeping media (for XBMC and subsonic) as well as downloading new content (Sabnzbd and Sickbeard), and backup (FTP) using a Windows 8.1 system and its Storage Spaces feature to create a storage pool.
Before trying it out - I don't find any documentation.
Given that Storage Pools have serious performance problems with parity, and do not rebalance data at the moment when you add discs, my preferred way to use them would be as think provisioned space, ISCSI targets - with every "Pool" running against 1 RAID that comes from a Raid controller (who also introduces SSD read and write caching - anoth
I am trying to access a Windows Storage Spaces pool. Physically they are 2 iOmega 1 tb usb external drives. Logically, my work computer (running Win 8 pro) see's it as one drive. The definition from the Microsoft website:
Storage Spaces lets you group drives together in a storage pool.
You need buffer pool a bit (say 10%) larger than your data (total size
of Innodb TableSpaces)
On the other hand I've read elswher that innodb_buffer_pool_size must be up to %80 of the memory. So I'm really confused how should I choose the best size for the pool. My database size is about 6GB and my total memory 64GB.
