[pve-devel] Default cache mode for VM hard drives

Another difference is that cache=none|directsync is that vm use aio=native instead aio=threads.

(you can try cache=none,aio=threads in you disk config to change the behaviour).

Maybe it doesn't work well with drbd.

I have an update on this issue. 

I have found circumstances when we get out of sync with directsync mode and made more test. What I found out so far was that out of sync only appear for cache modes with O_DIRECT, i.e. for those cache modes when host cache is bypassed. Write-back and write-through modes do not produce out of sync blocks with DRBD while "none" and "directsync" do. 

Best regards,
