About compression option for qcow2
Last modified: 2015-11-10 21:49:05 EST
Description of problem:
It is not a bug but a request
It would be possible to compress in creating qcow2 image
(qemu-img convert -c option)
But, there was not option like that in virt-v2v
Could you add compression option
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
You are using -o local for virt-v2v, I guess?
Yes I'm using -o local -of qcow2
And editing v2v.ml directly now
It seems reasonable to have a --qcow2-compression option
or something like that. It would just add the -c option
to the qemu-img convert command.
It seems as if it would work with all output modes too,
although it is possible that -o glance and -o rhev do a
reconversion step (not in v2v).
