RFE: snapshot size option should default to 10% of the origin vol
Last modified: 2009-04-16 18:59:04 EDT
Description of problem:
We (lvm folks) recommend that snapshots should be roughly 10% of the origin
volume size, give or take depending on how much the user believes that origin
The current default setting for a snapshot vol in conga is "the rest of the VG".
So if you have a 100G origin volume and 200G left in the VG your snapshot will
be created twice as big as the origin volume.
