yast-btrfs-maintainance module (conception)

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


Hello! Removed from https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=953644

I'd like to offer the schema for, possibly, yast-btrfs-maintainance module, which combines btrfs settings by parsing matched conf-files and snapper window. Schema (first variation) and its summary are in yast-btrfs-maintanance.txt (attached in 953644 as dedicated file to avoid alignment fails - https://bugzilla.suse.com/attachment.cgi?id=654649 ).

Preamble: I've not a pleasant experience of using btrfs (hdd was overloaded by snapshots and than I got kernel panic). Fortunately, it happend on vbox. I had no info how to define dedicated volume for snapshot storaging, how to schedule the period of taking snapshots (or even how to turn it on/off), how to define behavior when zypper updates\installs\uninstalls packages and so on.

So, I made up the conception (hope, useful) of general btrfs-maintaining YaST module, which parses the matching btrfs' configs and incorporates maintaining of snapper database. And existed yast2-snapper module can be replaced\upgraded with this general module.

User benefit:

User/admin will have the unified module of all btrfs-settings, which are nowadays included in couple of dedicated conf-files.
