Fixed In Version: heketi-6.0.0-14.el7rhgs
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, when PVCs were created/deleted in environments that are managed by Heketi, the LVM-metadata backups resulted in large storage consumption under /etc/lvm/archive which resulted in the filesystem running out of space. With this fix, Heketi no longer creates backups of LVM-metadata by default. This configuration can be changed by editing the `backup_lvm_metadata: true` variable in the heketi.json configuration file.

Comment 3 Niels de Vos 2018-05-17 16:49:42 UTC
There is very little use of the lvm archives for actions that heketi does. Users are not expected to need to restore a VG/LV, they would rather replace the brick and have Gluster repair/heal the data.

We can prevent creating the lvm archive by passing --autobackup=n to vgcreate/lvcreate.
