Journal dcowart's Journal: LVM in linux...

If you aren't using LVM in linux by now, run to the howto, read it, and start using it on all your servers. IT ROCKS!! I needed more space for my /var partition so I lvextend'ed the partition using the free PV's in my VG and then resize2fs'ed the ext3 fs to use the new space. It's just great to be able to do these operation without having to take the box down. It's much much more flexible that having hard coded partitions. ReiserFS makes it easier b/c then I don't have to unmount the partition to grow it larger. I think XFS is the same way. Although to shrink it, the partition must be unmounted.

LVM is a good thing all around.
