Hi Markus,

can you send an update to the list if this does help as well?

Hi Maor,

from our observation it MIGHT come from the xfs filesystem on the NFS storage.
qemu thin provisioned raw disks of linux database VMs tend to fragment heavily
during growth. Some of the disk images have > 1.000.000 extends.

To sort it out we have fixed the extendsize of the OVirt mount point to 1M
(xfs_io -c 'extsize 1m' /var/nas/OVirt). If this does not help I will send you 

Best regards.

Hi Markus,

Can you try to use dd on a random file in that storage domain, What is the 
performance it reflects?
Just want to make sure what is the origin of the problem, if  it is related to 
the storage domain or the qemu process.

Hi there,

in the past we already observed that live merge operations may take some time.
Currently another of those operations is running on one of our VMs on a
CentOS 7/qemu 2.3 node. Storage is (async - yeah I know about potential data
loss) NFS over 10GBit network.

The operation is running for 50 minutes now with an average throughput of
5MByte/sec. The disk (defined at 400GB) and its snapshots does not show much
thin provisioning:

Usually at some point the process is gaining speed and we see >100MByte/sec
speed. Can anyone explain what might be going on.

Best regards.
