Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 857010
Add dm/lvm related services to default preset file
Last modified: 2012-09-13 07:54:42 EDT
Please, if possible, add following in the 99-default.preset file:
dm-event.socket + lvm2-monitor.service is an essential part for monitoring the use of lvm2 snapshots and mirrors (the dm-event.socket also as a service for any other potential device-mapper subsystem that needs its devices to be monitored).
The lvm2-lvmetad.socket is essential to instantiate the lvmetad daemon that keeps track of metadata and PVs that appear/disappear on a system and to avoid further scans, making lvm2 to run more efficiently (also removing the dependency on udev-settle).
(Note: the dmeventd daemon (dm-event.socket) and the lvmetad daemon (lvm2-lvmetad.socket) are instantiated on-demand, on the first access.)
If I get it right, this should be OK with the Fedora policy https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Starting_services_by_default (but correct me if I'm wrong).
Already added in http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/scm-commits/2012-September/861806.html
Great! I guess this is going to be in F18 as well, right? ...closing the bug then.
Actually, I would say the commit was made to F18 branch
