Subject Re: Questions about XenServer Delta Snapshots
Date Thu, 19 Dec 2013 17:59:12 GMT
I've done more research into this and figured I'd send out my findings to
the group:

1) Yes

2) It seems you never write to state E. If you revert to state E, what
happens is you get a new state that is the same as state E (in the diagram,
envision state D being gone after reverting to state E and a new state F
that's the Active state alongside state E - F is the Active state, so
that's where your writes/reads go to).
