Subject: [Engine-devel] Gluster Volume asynchronous tasks
We are working on a feature to add support to start and monitor gluster
volume asynchronous tasks (like rebalancing a gluster volume, removing
brick from volume ) from the oVirt engine.
The operations can be started from the Volumes tab or the Bricks sub-tab
using the Rebalance, Remove options.
These are long running operations which can be monitored using a task id
returned from Gluster. We are planning to add the monitoring in the
existing Task sub tab
The feature description and User flows are at
The detailed design (including REST API design) is at
I would really appreciate if you could review and provide your valuable
Why not using 6the External Tasks feature introduced for 3.3 for those Gluster tasks ???
