Working with Linux LVM

further reading refer

This is what I do

Growing your lvm partition.
  • Find free space:
  • lvm vgs (VFree is amount of free space)
  • Find the the logical volum:
  • lvdisplay (LV Name is what you want)
  • Extend the drive (Add 50GB to current size) : 
  • lvextend –size +50G /dev/drive
  • unmount the drive (If drive is busy use lsof | grep /mountpoint to find the process that is using the mountpoint)
  • e2fsck -f /dev/drive
  • resize2fs /dev/drivemount
  • done
Its best if the drive is umounted before the lvextend command runs. (I have never had issues with this but you never know. )
