[DOC]-SBRvirt request - Storage pool documentation needs to be re-tweaked
Last modified: 2018-06-06 06:12:23 EDT
Section Number and Name: Storage Pools chapter 13
Describe the issue:
Storage pool documentation needs to be re-tweaked - need to address the concept of a storage pool. Storage pools are not required - we have nothing to say whether you do or don’t need a storage pool
It is possible to create image from the defaults. Placing image files anywhere as an option is also not stated - need to tweak SELinux for this.
*Rewriting the ENTIRE storage chapter
*Put in section that dictates which hardware solution yields which storage pool
*Clearer understanding for what a storage pool volume and solution are and how and when to use them
*CLEARLY state that a storage pool is not required
*Also important is to Explain difference between the types of storage pool
*How to choose the storage pool that matches what you want to do, why to use one type or another.
*There are many ways to use storage. ie. if they have Fibre Channel -- put on LUNs or put on LVM
Customers should/usually understand what base system they have - will know if they have:
Based on this they choose which storage pool type to configure. However, they don’t know which instructions apply to them.
Suggestions for improvement:
Unclear why there's 2 bugs tracking exactly the same thing (bz 1470018 points at the same link above). If one or the other is preferred for updates let me know; otherwise, I'll assume the latter is preferred. I'll work section by section - never quite sure how long it'll take to finish, but I am working on it now and will provide some feedback shortly.
