Qemu driver using gluster:// for accessing VM image

Is it possible to specify gluster:// in image_path for accessing VM image over glusterfs instead of downloading the image as a local file?

Hi @alishir1 :wave:

I don’t think so. You could use a host volume that mounts your gluster directory in the client, then the job can mount this volume and read the image.

Would this work for you?

Thanks a lot @lgfa29 , according to some documentation accessing glusfterfs via libgfapi have better performance than accessing via the mount point.

I don’t know a whole lot about gluster, but maybe you could mount the volume in the client machine using libgfapi and then use Nomad’s host volume to access it from the allocation.
