[sheepdog-users] dog cluster snapshot problems

My suspicion is there's some issue with uniqueness, and that you're clobbering the older snapshots when you reuse a tag.  I've only used the snapshot feature a few times as I've found it to be not as useful as scripting converts to qcow2, then incrementals through the week/month.  I also had performance issues when saving snapshots to a remote NAS in another building.

Hi, I created a cluster snapshot the 21th of July.
I saved two more snapshots, the last one yesterday.
But I see only one:

dog cluster snapshot list  /media/esterno/cluster_snapshots/
Index           Tag             Snapshot Time
1               s201407211029           Mon Jul 21 12:51:52 2014

This is the procedure I use:
All vdi has no snapshot.
Then I create a snapshot for each vdi.
Save the cluster snaphsot.
Remove all vdi snapshots.

Note: the vdi snapshot tag I use is alway the same (different id).

What do you think about it?
