Re: [Xen-API] [xs-devel] lvmthin

So sorry, I meant of course to write that the utility is lvmthin (not thinlvm).

As of around CentOS 6.5 (and for sure in RHEL 6.4) that there is a thinlvm lvmthin utility that seems to take care of supporting thinly-provisioned LVM volumes. There is an associated snapshot design based on LVM thin provisioning that even supports the ability to do snapshots of snapshots, etc. down the chain.

Unfortunately, from a cursory look, it doesn't look like a back port to CentOS 5 would be that easy or even possible, but that it is integrated into both CentOS 6 and CentOS 7 gives some hope for a possibly standardized support of it in a future XenServer release, doesn't it? The other big question would be how readily something like this could be integrated into XenServer.
