Description Joerg 2011-09-18 16:13:12 UTC
Description of problem:
I have created a snapshot of a logical volume.
Then a start to fill the original logical volume. The Snapshot is resized 3-4 times. After that no further resizing takes place and the snapshot hits 100 %.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
LVM version:     2.02.84(2) (2011-02-09)
Library version: 1.02.63 (2011-02-09)
Driver version:  4.20.0


How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set 
   snapshot_autoextend_threshold = 90
   snapshot_autoextend_percent = 20
 in lvm.conf
2. create Snap shot
   lvcreate -s -L 5G -n name Logical_VOlume
3. fill logical volume
   use dd
  
Actual results:
after a few resizes the snapshot fills to 100% and stops

Expected results:
resize until volume group is exhausted

Additional info:
the volume group has 420 GB free space.

Comment 1 Zdenek Kabelac 2011-10-18 15:04:41 UTC
Couldn't be here the issue, that your 'dd' command fills blocks too fast and dmeventd is not responsive enough to grow so quickly. 

Could you try to use lower value for threshold - i.e. 80% or 70% ?

Comment 2 Joerg 2011-10-19 12:07:23 UTC
Hi I checked with 70 %.

Now it seems that this is working.

So maybe the issue is that 90 % is not a good threshold value.

Thank you.
