Where can I find details on LVM strip.


while search engine searching it was confusing! is strip in linux is the same as strip in linux LVM where can i find details on LVM strip http://tldp.org/HOWTO/html_single/LVM-HOWTO/ does not give explanation just few sentence and afterwards it confuses.

"Warning LVM 1 Caveat
LVs created using striping cannot be extended past the PVs they were originally created on in LVM 1.
In LVM 2, striped LVs can be extended by concatenating another set of devices onto the end of the first set. So you can get into a situation where your LV is a 2 stripe set concatenated with a linear set concatenated with a 4 stripe set. Are you confused yet?"

if u could see wat i mean.

No they are actually different.
"STRIPING" in LVM

When you use disk striping, you create a logical volume that spans multiple disks, allowing successive blocks of data to go to logical extents on different disks. For example, a three-way striped logical volume has data allocated on three disks, with each disk storing every third block of data. The size of each of these blocks is referred to as the stripe size of the logical volume.

While the other "STRIP"

GNU strip discards all symbols from object files objfile. The list of object files may include archives.
At least one object file must be given.

I hope this will clear ur confusion
