/swap volume when increasing /stand

We are upgrading 10.20 to 11.11. The manual notes increasing /stand (which we have to do). it mentions to create a new contiguous /swap volume. Is this a file system swap or a device swap? How do you tell if it is contiguous and that there is no bad block relocation? thanks.

Re: /swap volume when increasing /stand

Its device swap, not filesystem swap.

Use lvdisplay to find out whether a logical volume is contiguous and/or has bad-block relocation enabled.

e.g:

lvdisplay /dev/vg00/lvol1 #(usually /stand)
lvdisplay /dev/vg00/lvol2 #(usually /swap)
lvdisplay /dev/vg00/lvol3 #(usually /)

Re: /swap volume when increasing /stand

a) Device swap
b) Use "lvdisplay" (example : /dev/vg00/lvol2)

# lvdisplay /dev/vg00/lvol2|grep -E 'Bad|Allocation'
Bad block off
Allocation strict/contiguous
