Description Miya Chen 2010-07-01 05:10:19 UTC
Description of problem:
errors were found on image after cut off host power during iozone running in guest.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# uname -r
2.6.32-37.el6.x86_64
# rpm -q qemu-kvm
qemu-kvm-0.12.1.2-2.82.el6.x86_64


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. start guest by:
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -usbdevice tablet -rtc-td-hack -uuid `uuidgen` -drive file=/home/win2008r2-64.qcow2,media=disk,if=none,format=qcow2,cache=none,werror=stop,rerror=stop,id=drive-ide0 -device ide-drive,drive=drive-ide0 -smp 2 -m 4G -cpu qemu64,+sse2,+x2apic -vnc :3 -monitor stdio -netdev tap,id=hostnet0,vhost=on -device virtio-net-pci,netdev=hostnet0,mac=20:20:78:6b:b1:99 -boot c -name win2008r2-64.qcow2

2. run iozone in guest:
iozone.exe -azR -i 0 -i 1 -i 2 -r 4k -n 1G -g 4G -M -f c:\testfile

3. cut off host power

4. power on host again, then check image.
  
Actual results:
1. # qemu-img check win2008r2-64.qcow2

32 errors were found on the image.

2. start guest with same cmd, it can boot up successfully.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release.  Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for
inclusion.

Comment 4 Kevin Wolf 2010-07-01 09:38:39 UTC
I've looked it up and this message just means that there are some clusters allocated that are after the end of the file. Probably harmless. This might happen when the clusters have been allocated, but not yet written to.

The errors start 11,618,361,344 bytes. To confirm my theory, could you please check if the image file size is just below this value? Also, if you write to the image (maybe you have already written enough by booting it - then the file size would differ, of course), do the qemu-img check errors disappear?

# qemu-img info win2008r2-64.qcow2
image: win2008r2-64.qcow2
file format: qcow2
virtual size: 15G (16106127360 bytes)
disk size: 11G
cluster_size: 4096

yes, after boot it again, qemu-img check errors disappeared.

Great, so your image is fine. Closing as NOTABUG. I'll take care of this case when improving the qemu-img check messages.
