Determine free space in lvm/xen Environment


does anybody know how to determine the free space of an ext3 volume inside lvm/xen Environment.

That seems simple, if the volume is mounted (df ...).
But I canīt mount the volume, because it is already mounted in a xen domU.

I tried tune2fs -l, but there are false values.
I tried to make a snapshot, but the volume is mirrored and lvm (on centos 5) does not support snapshots for mirrored volumes.

Can anybody help me?

I'm a complete beginner myself, but try


in Terminal, xterm or whatever you use.

It didnt come out of the box on my Fedora15, but yum installed it like a charm.

hope this helps,



ext3, lvm, xen
