2014-08-22qemu-img: Allow cache mode specification for amendMax Reitz
qemu-img amend may extensively modify the target image, depending on the options to be amended (e.g. conversion to qcow2 compat level 0.10 from 1.1 for an image with many unallocated zero clusters). Therefore it makes sense to allow the user to specify the cache mode to be used.

2014-08-22qemu-img: Allow source cache mode specificationMax Reitz
Many qemu-img subcommands only read the source file(s) once. For these use cases, a full write-back cache is unnecessary and mainly clutters host cache memory. Though this is generally no concern as cache memory is freely available and can be scaled by the host OS, it may become a concern with thin provisioning. For these cases, it makes sense to allow users to freely specify the source cache mode (e.g. use no cache at all). This commit adds a new switch (-T) for the qemu-img subcommands check, compare, convert and rebase to specify the cache to be used for source images (the backing file in case of rebase).

2013-09-12block: Image file option amendmentMax Reitz
This patch adds the "amend" option to qemu-img which allows changing image options on existing image files. It also adds the generic bdrv implementation which is basically just a wrapper for the image format specific function.

2013-09-06add qemu-img convert -n option (skip target volume creation)Alexandre Derumier
Add a -n option to skip volume creation on qemu-img convert. This is useful for targets such as rbd / ceph, where the target volume may already exist; we cannot always rely on qemu-img convert to create the image, as dependent on the output format, there may be parameters which are not possible to specify through the qemu-img convert command line.

2012-06-15qemu-img check -r for repairing imagesKevin Wolf
The QED block driver already provides the functionality to not only detect inconsistencies in images, but also fix them. However, this functionality cannot be manually invoked with qemu-img, but the check happens only automatically during bdrv_open(). This adds a -r switch to qemu-img check that allows manual invocation of an image repair. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com>

2011-08-29qemu-img: Require larger zero areas for sparse handlingKevin Wolf
By default, require 4k of consecutive zero bytes for qemu-img to make the output file sparse by not issuing a write request for the zeroed parts. Add an -S option to allow users to tune this setting. This helps to avoid situations where a lot of zero sectors and data sectors are mixed and qemu-img tended to issue many tiny 512 byte writes. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com>

2011-07-05qemu-img: Add cache command line optionFederico Simoncelli
qemu-img currently writes disk images using writeback and filling up the cache buffers which are then flushed by the kernel preventing other processes from accessing the storage. This is particularly bad in cluster environments where time-based algorithms might be in place and accessing the storage within certain timeouts is critical.

2010-01-13qemu-img rebaseKevin Wolf
This adds a rebase subcommand to qemu-img which allows to change the backing file of an image. In default mode, both the current and the new backing file need to exist, and after the rebase, the COW image is guaranteed to have the same guest visible content as before. To achieve this, old and new backing file are compared and, if necessary, data is copied from the old backing file into the COW image. With -u an unsafe mode is enabled that doesn't require the backing files to exist. It merely changes the backing file reference in the COW image. This is useful for renaming or moving the backing file. The user is responsible to make sure that the new backing file has no changes compared to the old one, or corruption may occur.
