Subject Re: [GitHub] cloudstack pull request #1735: CLOUDSTACK-9570: Bug in listSnapshots for sna...
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2017 06:51:08 GMT
In case of unmanaged primary storage, we only care about secondary storage for snapshot. In
case of VMware primary storage is only involved while taking snapshot. As far as I know process
to take snapshot is to take VM snapshot, backup volume to secondary and then remove the VM
snapshot on primary. After the snapshot is successfully created primary storage is of no concern
to that snapshot. Somebody can confirm that. I am not able to figure out what performance
improvements you are talking about?

Also, the datastore checks while listing snapshots are there because of managed primary storage

    @anshul1886 Actually in unmanaged primary storage scenario the removal of PS doesn't check
for the existence of the volume snapshot copy. Snapshot should be allowed to exist on secondary
after primary is gone. In VMware environment snapshot copy on primary only improves performance
but in the end it always replicates to secondary where it remains as a source of truth for
a given snapshot
