Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 983130
[RFE] please add information on a volume's snapshots in volume's tab
Last modified: 2015-06-04 17:52:37 EDT
Description of problem:
since we cannot remove a volume while it has a snapshot it would be nice to be able to see what volume has a snapshot and which does not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a volume
2. create a snapshot
we can see in the images&snapshot tab what is the volume name but we cannot see any information on the snapshot from the volumes tab
since we cannot remove a volume that has snapshot it would be useful to show some information on the snapshot on the volumes tab.
Upstream is planning to move the "Volume snapshots" table to the "Volumes" panel, which should help with this.
The "Volume snapshots" table was moved to the "Volumes" panel in Icehouse. This should be available in the current OSP 5 packages, and help a little with this problem. However I'm not sure if this is enough to consider the bug resolved.
Hi Dafna - as per my previous comment, could you either confirm if this is enough to resolve the problem for now, or otherwise open a bug upstream to track the remaining parts? Thank you.
I think that the problem is the mapping of volume snapshots.
since snapshots are dependent on a volume I think it would be useful and time saving for an admin to see the chain.
I don't think that moving snapshots to the volume completely solves the issue. however, I understand that it might require more work than a simple patch... maybe we should move this to RFE?
Thanks for the answer, that sounds reasonable to me. I think opening a bug for this upstream would help getting it some attention as well (even if this is a RFE, I think for now it would fit upstream as a wishlist-type bug rather than full-blown blueprint).
there is an upstream bug (attached in external links)
perhaps we can create a second one for showing chaining between volume and volume snapshots?
The upstream bug attached is resolved and only related to moving the snapshots to the volumes panel, I agree another one should be created to address the other point.
Closing downstream task for low priority RFE, this is tracked upstream at https://bugs.launchpad.net/horizon/+bug/1323644
