Logical Volume Manager (LVM):論理ボリュームマネージャ


LVM : ArchWiki


Physical volume (PV)
Unix block device node, usable for storage by LVM. Examples: a hard disk, an MBR or GPT partition, a loopback file, a device mapper device (e.g. dm-crypt). It hosts an LVM header.

Volume group (VG)
Group of PVs that serves as a container for LVs. PEs are allocated from a VG for a LV.

Logical volume (LV)
“Virtual/logical partition” that resides in a VG and is composed of PEs. LVs are Unix block devices analogous to physical partitions, e.g. they can be directly formatted with a file system.

Physical extent (PE)
The smallest contiguous extent (default 4 MiB) in the PV that can be assigned to a LV. Think of PEs as parts of PVs that can be allocated to any LV.


Note: lvresize(8) provides more or less the same options as the specialized lvextend(8) and lvreduce(8) commands, while allowing to do both types of operation. Notwithstanding this, all those utilities offer a -r /--resizefs option which allows to resize the file system together with the LV using fsadm(8) (ext2 , ext3, ext4, ReiserFS and XFS supported). Therefore it may be easier to simply use lvresize for both operations and use --resizefs to simplify things a bit, except if you have specific needs or want full control over the process.


Resizing the logical volume and file system in one go

Note: Only ext2 , ext3, ext4, ReiserFS and XFS file systems are supported. For a different type of file system see #Resizing the logical volume and file system separately.

ext2 , ext3, ext4, ReiserFS , XFS ファイルシステムの場合のみ --resizefs オプションを付与してファイルシステムのリサイズも可能。

ボリュームグループ/論理ボリュームを指定して lvresize コマンドを実行

Extend the logical volume mediavol in MyVolGroup by 10 GiB and resize its file system all at once:

# lvresize -L +10G --resizefs MyVolGroup/mediavol

Set the size of logical volume mediavol in MyVolGroup to 15 GiB and resize its file system all at once:

# lvresize -L 15G --resizefs MyVolGroup/mediavol

If you want to fill all the free space on a volume group, use the following command:

# lvresize -l +100%FREE --resizefs MyVolGroup/mediavol

Resizing the logical volume and file system separately

For file systems not supported by fsadm(8) will need to use the appropriate utility to resize the file system before shrinking the logical volume or after expanding it.

To extend logical volume mediavol within volume group MyVolGroup by 2 GiB without touching its file system:

$ sudo lvresize -L +2G MyVolGroup/mediavol

Now expand the file system (ext4 in this example) to the maximum size of the underlying logical volume:

$ sudo resize2fs /dev/MyVolGroup/mediavol

To reduce the size of logical volume mediavol in MyVolGroup by 500 MiB, first calculate the resulting file system size and shrink the file system (ext4 in this example) to the new size:

$ sudo resize2fs /dev/MyVolGroup/mediavol *NewSize*

When the file system is shrunk, reduce the size of logical volume:

$ sudo lvresize -L -500M MyVolGroup/mediavol
