LVM Snapshots, can they be disabled?


I have a RHEL 4 system that was setup with snapshots. After a short period of time it was realized how slow this is making the system. Now I've been asked to disable the snapshots but how? I've searched Google and found nothing. My guess is I'm still too newb and am missing some sort of understanding about LVM. Any help would be appreciated.

There may be a cron job or other script running this snapshot. As root, do a "crontab -l", and see what's there.

Also, since you're using RHEL, you can contact RedHat support, and they can walk you through alot of this on the phone, or point you to the docs in their knowledgebase...

Found the cronjob and took care of that. Now I think I had best do some reading on LVM to get a better understanding of it all. Thanks
