Re: FS question

It's a guess only, but maybe the LVOL was extended in the past without running extendfs?

Hope this helps!

Re: FS question

you r right..am also thinking in the same way...but anyway am going to do a vgextend of some 10GB.at that time I need to go for a extendfs...

Re: FS question

lvextend simply makes the volume larger. It has nothing to do with files and directories. You have to inform the filesystem that there is more space available. The reverse is also true. lvreduce will make the volume smaller. The filesystem thinks that all the space is available so items like superblocks at the end of the lvol are gone and you'll get I/O errors as the filesystem code tries to read or write to the end of the filesystem.

While there is an extendfs, there is no reducefs. If you need to reduce a filesystem, you must backup the data, umount the filesystem, run lvreduce and then newfs. Finally, mount the empty filesystem and restore the data to the new lvol. If you have the Online JFS product, you would use fsadm to resize the filesystem both up and down without requiring a umount (lvextend and lvreduce are still required).

Re: FS question

Hi..,
yah.. you are thinking right. add some disk space about 10 GB as per your requirement then go for the file system extension, then with the one logic both of your problems will get resolved.
because File system bottle neck is never a good idea.. thanks

Re: FS question

Thts r88 Mr.Panda..But the thing is app team requires the fs to be extended 10GB more.In my scenario if I add more 10GB lun and if i go for an extendfs,the fs will get extend to 15GB r88????So first I need to confirm,is the 5GB space is available or not.Then i have to add 5GB more.

Re: FS question

Yah.. verymuch ryt.. you are thinking is a postive way.. Lets first get confirmed.. Bcoz Please remember one thing that,, We Admins... always a miser towards disk spaces.. We have to get a valid reason to increase the disk space.. so its not atall easy for us to give spaces like the application team thinks... so get it first done.. then you can proceed with ur stuffs...Be Cool man...

Thanks

Re: FS question

IF onlinejfs is installed ;then do below step to make available the space to FS :

fsadm -b 25568M /usr/sap/PEP

after this you be able to see 25GB space to /usr/sap/PEP

Re: FS question

Since this is 11.31, was this system created from an Ignite image? You may be missing this special file: /dev/vxportal

To recreate it:

mknod /dev/vxportal c 97 0x000000
