Hey hey,

I belive i have a slow instance Snapshot issue but no logs or something else.

I have a Multi Controller-Compute(KVM)-Networke(Neutron) Envroiment based on Ubuntu 14.04 with Juno We habe a LACP bounded 1GB Network (=2GB)

Nova instances are on a NetAPP NFS Storage Glance Images on a NetAPP NFS Storage, too. Its the same NetAPP but not the same Share!

I try to Snapshot a Win Srv 12R2 instance with a 150GB C:\ Partition. On the Partition are Images and Trash, with Windows the VM need ~50GB real.

The end result is a 32,2GB big Glance Image. The Snapshot process need 45 minutes of Time.

Is the time normal ? Can I speedup the Snapshot process? Is there a possibility to snapshot like VMWare ? (Under 5 Minutes without Image?)

Why not try creating an instance from a volume, and snapshotting the volume? This will also allow for live migration of vms and possibly other advantages as well. I believe it's slow because the ephemeral disk is still managed by nova and persistent storage is the way to go.

Snapshotting Volumes with Generic NFS driver isn't possible. The function is not implemented... NetApp NFS driver requires license for flex_clone ....
