Description Kevin Wolf 2018-06-26 09:47:09 UTC
The patch series for bug 1513543 adds the external API for the blockdev-create job, but even though it is using the job infrastructure, we noticed that it doesn't actually run in the background, but preallocation can block the monitor and the VM for quite a long time.

The solution for this is making bdrv_truncate() asynchronous, but this requires some more work upstream, so I decided to get the new API in first and track the blocking behaviour separately with this bug.

Fix included in qemu-kvm-rhev-2.12.0-8.el7

Comment 5 Gu Nini 2018-07-26 05:46:39 UTC
Reproduced the bug on qemu-kvm-rhev-2.12.0-8.el7.x86_64; verified the bug on qemu-kvm-rhev-2.12.0-8.el7.x86_64, i.e. the 'blockdev-create' job runs in background now:

{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1532583767, "microseconds": 938252}, "event": "JOB_STATUS_CHANGE", "data": {"status": "created", "id": "job2"}}
{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1532583767, "microseconds": 938302}, "event": "JOB_STATUS_CHANGE", "data": {"status": "running", "id": "job2"}}
{"return": {}}
************************************>> We can see the job can't be dismissed
