vgs help needed....want to understand it...?


Hi,

I have a query regarding the vgs in my Linux server :

#vgs
VG #PV #LV #SN Attr VSize VFree
data 1 1 0 wz--n- 231.81G 171.81G
os 1 3 0 wz--n- 40.00G 10.00G


Data is showing 171.81G free .

What does this Data means in VG Column ?

My Filesystem is :
#df -H

/dev/mapper/os-root 15G 9.9G 4.0G 72% /

Data is the name of the VG. You can also use pvdisplay, vgdisplay, and lvdisplay to get more information.
