Thumbs up How to use LVM in Linux


Hi,

How to use LVM in Linux;

Posted on May 7, 2014 by Sarmed Rahman

Logical Volume Manager (LVM) is a versatile disk management system that can easily be used in Linux or similar operating systems. Traditional partitions are created in fixed sizes, and resizing them is a tedious process. On the other hand, LVM creates and manages "logical" volumes off of physical hard disks, and provides administrators the flexibility to extend and shrink logical volumes easily on demand without damaging stored data. Additional hard disks can be added to LVM at will, further increasing existing logical volumes. LVM does not need reboot as long as the kernel is aware of the existence of a partition.

Hi,

Your Welcome!

I do like to provide informational links that can help our members here at LQ. I do a lot of system work & read loads of white papers, Linux news and whatever concerning Linux/Gnu/Linux. What I do find and feel members can use to enlighten their experience, I will post.

As to this LVM link do not forget to look at lleb's link: http://www.redhat.com/magazine/009jul05/features/lvm2/ so you can enhance your work with LVM. Build upon what you learn.

Glad to hear this helps.
