Re: EVA snapshot, snapclone, mirrorclone

Hi, Sekhar

In Snapshot, you have two options, Capacity free or fully allocated, first one needs less space and does not need a space as big as the source but second needs exactly same space as source, snapshot in both cases creates a map of pointers at the time snapshot created, to the source and only replaces the pointers as soon as data on the source changes, So it is dependent to source and can not be splitted from the source.

Snapclone works similar to snapshot but continues to copy the source to snapclone, when cloning finished you can split and use the snapclone as a point in time backup of your source disk,

In mirrorclone there is no point in time copy but it is a live copy of the source, whenever you want to use the mirrorclone you can permanently or temporarily split the mirrorclone and send I/O to that disk, if temp used you can resync the mirrorclone afterwards.
