Description Jonathan Earl Brassow 2013-08-01 18:38:31 EDT
pvmove currently skips RAID LVs - fix that.
Comment 1 Jonathan Earl Brassow 2013-08-26 17:48:47 EDT
There are several upstream commits that have gone into providing a fix for this bug.  The list below includes some patches that enable pvmove on non-RAID LVs as well - like thin.  However, they are somewhat intertwined and the final commit that includes testsuite updates is useful.

commit 0799e81ee08a76c877d774b2f7df75ad3ec29897

    test: pvmove tests for all the different segment types.
    Test moving linear, mirror, snapshot, RAID1,5,10, thinpool, thin
    and thin on RAID.  Perform the moves along with a dummy LV and
    also without the dummy LV by specifying a logical volume name as
    an argument to pvmove.

    pvmove:  Allow moving snapshot/origin.  Disallow converting and merging LVs
    The patch allows the user to also pvmove snapshots and origin logical
    volumes.  This means pvmove should be able to move all segment types.
    I have, however, disallowed moving converting or merging logical volumes.

    pvmove: Fix inability to specify LV name when moving RAID, mirror, or thin L
    Top-level LVs (like RAID, mirror or thin) are ignored when determining which
    portions of an LV to pvmove.  If the user specified the name of an LV to
    move and it was one of the above types, it would be skipped.  The code would
    never move on to check whether its sub-LVs needed moving because their names
    did not match what the user specified.
    The solution is to check whether a sub-LVs is part of the LV whose name was
    specified by the user - not just if there was a name match.

    misc: make lv_is_on_pv use for_each_sub_lv to walk LV tree
    Make lv_is_on_pv use for_each_sub_lv to walk the LV tree.  This
    reduces code duplication.

    pvmove: Ability to move thin volumes
    The previous commit was missing the code to allow moving thin

commit c59167ec132071d6ab53f928b0775c36a704fe7c

    pvmove: Add support for RAID, mirror, and thin
    This patch allows pvmove to operate on RAID, mirror and thin LVs.
    The key component is the ability to avoid moving a RAID or mirror
    sub-LV onto a PV that already has another RAID sub-LV on it.
    (e.g. Avoid placing both images of a RAID1 LV on the same PV.)
    Top-level LVs are processed to determine which PVs to avoid for
    the sake of redundancy, while bottom-level LVs are processed
    to determine which segments/extents to move.
    This approach does have some drawbacks.  By eliminating whole PVs
    from the allocation list, we might miss the opportunity to perform
    pvmove in some senarios.  For example, if we have 3 devices and
    a linear uses half of the first, a RAID1 uses half of the first and
    half of the second, and a linear uses half of the third (FIGURE 1);
    we should be able to pvmove the first device (FIGURE 2).
        FIGURE 1:
            [ linear ] [ -RAID- ] [ linear ]
            [ -RAID- ] [        ] [        ]
        FIGURE 2:
            [  moved ] [ -RAID- ] [ linear ]
            [  moved ] [ linear ] [ -RAID- ]
    However, the approach we are using would eliminate the second
    device from consideration and would leave us with too little space
    for allocation.  In these situations, the user does have the ability
    to specify LVs and move them one at a time.

    Thin: Make 'lv_is_on_pv(s)' work with thin types
    The pool metadata LV must be accounted for when determining what PVs
    are in a thin-pool.  The pool LV must also be accounted for when
    checking thin volumes.
    This is a prerequisite for pvmove working with thin types.

    Misc: Make get_pv_list_for_lv() available to more than just RAID
    The function 'get_pv_list_for_lv' will assemble all the PVs that are
    used by the specified LV.  It uses 'for_each_sub_lv' to traverse all
    of the sub-lvs which may compose it.

Verified in the latest rpms.
