I want to show map snapshot without displaying the actual map on the UI. I am sucessfull in getting the snapshot after the map is loaded to the UI. So I just want to know if it's possible to load the map in the background and get the snapshot and just display that snapshot on the UI, something like google now.
On my virtualization system there are some VMs. One of them was aimed for testing some services on it. So in this case i need to have the first state of that VM.
I search for solution too much and find the snapshot as a good approach for it. Then search deeper and found out that the virsh can do it form by snapshot-create. but beside it, there is an other command, snapshot-create-as.
I inadvertently created a situation where I deleted an LVM snapshot that was pending a merge (yes - bonehead move). Now I can neither finish the merge nor create a new snapshot on the original logical volume.
