Oh, I miss that.

I think it should be a qemu problem, as only difference is that

 with lvm snapshot backup,

backup reads are done directly from disk

and with qemu backup

reads are done through qemu

Maybe qemu has more overhead to read disk, or maybe they are some slowdown when guest need to read disk, and backup job need to read it too.

Also, does the backup have a difference of speed if vm use ide or virtio drives ?

The tests form Eric only do reads (there is no single write involved).
