Hello oVirt Development team
We had a conversation with Pavan Chavva for supporting RHV. He had suggested to contact you with queries related to oVirt APIs we plan to use.
We have following queries:
1. While downloading a snapshot disk, can we identify allocated extents and download only those using oVirt API? We are able to download the disk using the Image Transfer API mechanism.
However, this method downloads the entire disk including the non-allocated extents, which is a performance overhead. If this functionality does not exist at this point will it be available in near future?
2. Is there an alternate method to transfer a snapshot to and from RHV storage? Are there other methods such as NFS share where we can download snapshot image to and from RHV storage?
