cannot currently do sparseness detection, and compression gives us a
form of zero detection for free.

subprocess, which meant that higher level event callbacks might have

To fix this, convert the qemu case into a new function called
print_qemu_command line which just prints the command line directly to
stderr.  This is called after stderr has been redirected into the pipe
to the main process.  Thus the qemu command line will be marshalled
into the event API along with other qemu and appliance output.

After fixing this, only one use of guestfs___print_timestamped_argv
remained, for printing the febootstrap-supermin-helper command line.
This is converted to a local function print_febootstrap_command_line.

Also print_febootstrap_command_line is now called before we fork
febootstrap-supermin-helper, so that messages no longer overlap.

10 years agoImprove zeroing and detection of zeroes.
Richard W.M. Jones [Tue, 16 Aug 2011 11:39:28 +0000 (12:39 +0100)]
Improve zeroing and detection of zeroes.

This code modifies zero, zero-device, is-zero, is-zero-device.

zero and zero-device are modified so that if the blocks of the device
already contain zeroes, then we don't write zeroes.  The reason for
this is to avoid unnecessarily making the underlying storage
non-sparse or (in the qcow2 case) growing it.

is-zero and is-zero-device are modified so that zero detection is
faster.  This is a nice side effect of making the first change.

Since avoiding unnecessary zeroing involves reading the blocks before
writing them, whereas before we just blindly wrote, this can be
slower.  As you can see from the tests below, in the case where the
disk is sparse, it actually turns out to be faster, because we avoid
allocating the underlying blocks.

However in the case where the disk is non-sparse and full of existing
data, it is much slower.  There might be a case for an API flag to
adjust whether or not we perform the zero check.  I did not add this
flag because it is unlikely that the caller would have enough
information to be able to set the flag correctly.

                                (Elapsed time in seconds)
Format  Test case                 Before     After

Raw     Sparse                    16.4       5.3

        Preallocated zero         17.0       18.8

        Preallocated random       16.0       41.3

Qcow2   preallocation=off         18.7       5.6

        preallocation=metadata    17.4       5.8

The current code uses a fixed block size of 4K for reading and
writing.  I also tried the same tests with a block size of 64K but it
didn't make any significant difference.

Richard W.M. Jones [Mon, 8 Aug 2011 17:52:23 +0000 (18:52 +0100)]
inspection: Better checking for Windows root disks (RHBZ#729075).

Previously any disk that had /autoexec.bat or /boot.ini or /ntldr
would be picked up as a candidate for a Windows root disk.  If further
checking could not find any systemroot (eg. /windows) then this would
result in complete failure of inspection.

In particular, this got confused by Hp_recovery partitions which have
/autoexec.bat, but don't have a systemroot in one of the usual places
(they have /MiniNT instead).

What we do now is to properly investigate all possible systemroot
places before deciding this is a Windows systemroot, so the subsequent
failure cannot occur.
