FS extension

Hi Every one,

   I am in need to increase four FS which will come under one VG(VG consists of 4 LV).As per storage team policy they will provide  LUN's in each size of 8GB.It's multipathing LUN's so they will give 2 PV instead of one 1PV.Each LV size has to be increased up to 585GB .How many LUN's needed to complete this? I s there anything to be noted before increase LV "Schedule parallel"?

xyzabc# lvdisplay /dev/vg04scq/lv1
--- Logical volumes ---
LV Name /dev/vg04scq/lv1
VG Name /dev/vg04scq

Re: FS extension

That will not work ...

 

Max PV 250
Cur PV 128

 

leave a maximum of 122 PV's for extension, with 8 GB in size this will be a max increase of 976 GB for that VG. With the requirement of 4 x 585 GB you want to increase to 2340 GB  (498,828125 GB exist in lv1).

Re: FS extension

@ Stephan -- I read the problem that each LUN needs to increased so it is 585 GB in size.  Not increased BY 585 GB.

 

 

585 GB = Roughly 585,000 MB.  Your current LV appears to 510 GB, so you need to increase by 75 GB.  For 75 GB, you would need (75 / 8 = 9.375 LUNs) 10 LUNs of 8 GB size. 

 

If all 4 of your LVs are the same size, then you need an additional 300 GB of disk space, which would equate to (300 / 8 = 37.5 LUNs) 38 LUNs.

 

If you want to keep each set of LUNs separate for each LV, you would need 40 LUNs.

Re: FS extension

Hmm after reading it again possible that you are right, but it is not really clear to me due to the missing information of lv2-4

 

I would prefer an 'vgdisplay -v vg00' to verify.

Hi Stephen,

Here i am attaching the output of vgdisplay -v /dev/vg04scq  .

Kindly revert back as soon as possible.

Thanks for yours reply

Re: FS extension

Thanks, in this case Patrick provided the correct answer.

 

All your LVs are ~ 500GB and you want to extend to 585 GB  (+ 85GB) using 8GB LUNs, this means 11 LUNs per LV = 44 LUNs

 

Kudos should go to Patrick.

Re: FS extension

Further i am adding this LUN's like this,

1.pvcreate /PV

2.vgextend /dev/vg04xx

3.lvextend -L LV

4.fsadm -F vxfs -bM /filesystem

 

Correct me if i am wrong

Re: FS extension

No . it didn't worked as it was mentioned above.
i used vgextend -g PVG_Name /dev/vg04xx xxx xxx
because of Allocation PVG-strict/distributed policy

>> i used vgextend -g PVG_Name /dev/vg04xx xxx xxx

 

What was the exact command?

 

Did you adjust the PVG file?


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
