Interesting qemu/virt-manager bug about the "rotational" attribute on virtio-blk disks
Thu, 16 Jul 2020 09:06:14 +0100
A virtio-blk disk which is backed by a raw file on an SSD,
inside the guest shows rotational = 1.
I assumed that qemu must have a "rotational" property for disks and
this would be communicated by virtio to the guest, but qemu and virtio
don't seem to have this. Pretty surprising! Is it called something
other than "rotational"?
