I don't know if this is a regression because I haven't used internal snapshots in the past. QEMU 1.4-rc2: $ qemu-img create -f qcow2 test.qcow2 -o size=50G,preallocation=metadata $ time qemu-img snapshot -c new test.qcow2 real 3m39.147s user 0m10.748s sys 0m26.165s (This is on an SSD) I expect snapshot creation to take under 1 second.
