Re: [Xen-users] Disk i/o on Dom0 suddenly too slow

To add to my last email.
This happens to be related to LVM snapshot. Every time a snapshot is
created for the LVM where a particular domu is on, load on that domu
spikes up to 30 and things become sluggish.

Ionice and lvm parameter formalities didn't help!

To the the real guys out there:
How do you use LVM snapshots with Xen dom0, if any? To me, it seems
like LVM snapshotting isn't a short-term backup strategy at all!
