Interestingly when I do the same test with virtio-blk I do not really see the process freezes at the frequency or duration compared to virtio-scsi which seem to indicate a client side rather than storage side problem.

Hmm, this is really weird if the difference is in the guest-facing
device frontend.

Since libvirt is merely setting up the block job for the copy and the
copy itself is handled by qemu I suggest you contact the
qemu-block@xxxxxxxxxx mailing list.

Unfortunately you didn't provide any information on the disk
configuration (the VM XML) or how you start the blockjob, which I could
translate for you into qemu specifics. If you provide such information I
can do that to ensure that the qemu folks have all the relevant
