I've upgraded to 4.1 release, it have great feature "Pass discards", that now can be used without vdsm hooks, After upgrade I've tested it with NFS 4.1 storage, exported from netapp, but unfortunately found out, that it's not working, after some investigation, I've found, that NFS implementation(even 4.1) in Centos 7 doesn't support sparse files and fallocate(FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE), that quemu uses for file storage, it was added only in kernel 3.18, and sparse files is also announced feature of upcoming NFS4.2, sparsify also not working on this data domains(runs, but nothing happens).
This test also shows, that FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE not working, it was executed on centos ovirt host with mounted nfs share: # truncate -s 1024 test1 # fallocate -p -o 0 -l 1024 test1 fallocate: keep size mode (-n option) unsupported Is there any plans to backport this feature to node-ng, or centos? or we should wait for RHEL 8? NFS is more and more popular, so discards is VERY useful feature. I'm also planning to test fallocate on latest fedora with 4.x kernel and mounted nfs.
