Logical Volume Overview


Hello all,

Well today I just come to the table with hopefully a simple solution. I have a volume group (VolGroup100) which is root. I want to view my Logical Volumes within the VolGroup100, how can one do this?

Thanks again.

Great thanks for the help. What I think I need to do is view the FHS. Sole reason is I have the e-mail server complain that "opt/insight" is full. Any thoughts how I can view what logical volume (partition) /opt/insight is on?

just see what mount says about what is actually mounted on your system

I have issued the mount command before and there is no definitive. As far as I can tell "/opt/insight" is mount with the VolGroup00. If this were true I am curious to know why the e-mail server is stating that "/opt/insight" is out of space. Any other thoughts?

no definitive? it'll say where that data lives no problem. obviously if you have no dedicated /opt/insight then it'd define where /opt was, and if no dedicated /opt, where / is.

well a VG contains LV's and LV's contain the filesystems. it's no use having a VG with acres of space if the LV's are filling it up, and likewise no use of a big LV if the internal filesystem is only scaled for a portion of it.
