[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 0/27] write/create for Parallels images with reas

From: Denis V. Lunev
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 0/27] write/create for Parallels images with reasonable performance
Date: Tue, 10 Mar 2015 11:50:54 +0300

This patchset provides an ability to create of/write to Parallels
images and some testing of the new code. Reading and writings are
optimized out and I expect the same or slightly better performance
as qcow2.

This patchset consists of not problematic part of the previous
patchset aka
   [PATCH v4 0/16] parallels format support improvements
and new write/create code but it does not contradict questionable code
with XML handling there.

Changes from v2:
- read performance is almost doubled (up to 360 Mb/sec), write performance
  is improved by 15-20%
- bat caching approach changed completely. bat_bitmap now contains the data
  in on-disk format, which allows to use this data for metadata cache
- incorrect close detection code is added (inuse field in the header)
- very basic check consistency code added

Changes from v1:
- patches 13-19 added, which boosts performance from 800 KiB/sec to
  near native performance

P.S. This is definitely not for 2.3...
