File system resizing in vxvm

Hi,

We have to increase size of below filesystem. by 100GB however, I am confused which disk and diskgroup I have to check.

When I checeked vaultdg41 I found 6 GB of space free. But, when I checked vxprint o/p it shows volume v41 with subdisk emcpower38 and got confused, in b/w emcpower75 and emcpower38.

For temporary, use we can increase 5 GB, but i don't know, How should I proceed, please assist what diskgroup and disk do I have to check and what command should I use?

This is an urgent requirement, request to help as soon as possible.

 

root@lyle# df -h /vaults/v41/
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/vx/dsk/vaultdg/v41vol
                       5.0G    18M   4.7G     1%    /vaults/v41
root@lyle#

WHen checked we found the

How many disks do you have in

How many disks do you have in vaultdg and what size?

Check with 'vxprint -g vaultdg -ht'.

As per your previous post, you can specify which disk to use in vxresize command.
Or see Mike's example over here:

Have another look at df -h

Have another look at df -h output:

/dev/vx/dsk/vaultdg/v41vol

This volume is in vaultdg diskgroup. 

So, you need to look for disks in vaultdg diskgroup. Not vaultdg41.

PS:
I have moved this post to Storage Foundation forum.

Use: vxassist -g vaultdg

Use:

vxassist -g vaultdg maxgrow v41vol

 

To see if you have space to grow filesystem and if there is not enough space, then you will need to add a disk to the diskgroup - see https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/issue-while-extending-file-system-vxvm#comment-108884...

Mike

Do, vxassist -g

Do,

vxassist -g vaultdg maxsize

AND

vxassist -g vaultdg maxgrow v41vol

will provide same information of  maximum size to grow?

 

Thanks.

You are in the perfect

You are in the perfect situation where you can issue both commands and see the difference in output for yourself. The maxgrow command will take the current volume layout into account. Remember your previous attempt to grow a striped volume?

As your volume is not striped

As your volume is not striped or mirroed, then both should give the same, but as Marianne says, if the volume you are growing is mirrored or striped, then maxgrow and maxsize may give different results.

Mike Can you suggest, if I

Mike Can you suggest, if I have to increase the size of the volume through a particular disk, then which command should I have to use?

For instance, through vxdg -g dgname free, I got the info that emcpower75 disk has some space in vaultdg diskgroup may be 6 GB to extend, then which command do I have to use?

I believe if i go with with vxassist -g vaultdg maxsize command and then resize the volume, it would take space from any of the disk which there also chance of data corruption, right?

Please suggest?
