Nux commented on CLOUDSTACK-6369:
---------------------------------

Hi,

In case of ROOT volumes, can you confirm the cluster_size is inherited from the backing qcow2?
If yes, then this will be important when we create templates.

> To improve the qcow2 performance, it is important to tune parameters of "qemu-img create"
command.
> preallocation=metadata option, which I am working on in CLOUDSTACK-6191 improves randam
IOPS well, but the qcow2 image created with preallocation=metadata option cannot be used for
a differential image. 
> This "cluster_size" option improves IOPS of a differential qcow2 image which is created
with preallocation=off.
