Hello Andy,

My guess would be that you have to resize the filesystem as well.
Hope that helps.

Subject: [linux-lvm] lvdisplay disagrees with df for resized LV


I'm just starting out using LVM under SuSE 7.0. I created a logical
volume which was initially 30Gb but I then resized it to 90Gb (using
lvresize) spanning 3 physical volumes each of 30Gb.

Now, lvdisplay/vgdisplay shows the LV/VG size as 90Gb, but df still
lists the file system as 30Gb.

How can I get df to recognise the addtional space ?

Thanks in advance

resize_reiserfs did what you said. But 90000MB is not equal to 90GB
The standard power for the transfer K->M->G is 1024 (most tools) and 
not 1000 (==> 92160MB = 90 GB).

Compare the difference of 'df -h' ("real GB") and 'df -H' ("marketing GB").

You can get ext2 resizing tools from ext2resize.sourceforge.net.  There
is also the resize2fs tool included with e2fsprogs 1.19.

With the ext2online kernel patch and user-space tool, you can do online
(mounted) ext2 resizes.

Neither, this is actually a misperception of what a Gb really is. A Gb is
_not_ 1000Mb, despite what harddrive manufacturers will gladly tell you,
it is 1024Mb, and a Mb is really 1024Kb, and so on.

Taking a look at your particular case, 90,000 Mb divided by 1024 (not
1000, so it isn't 90) to get Gbs is 87.89G, which is indeed exactly what
you have, no?

FYI, reiserfs can also be resized online (at least, the current
2.4-beta versions) w/ a command like the following:

mount -o remount,resize=[NEWSIZE] filesystem

I can't speak authoritatively about the missing 2G, but you can
compare the LVM's allocated size (use vgdisplay to see how many PEs
are allocated and what their size is) to the size of the filesystem
reported by debugreiserfs.

Also note that some earlier versions of reiserfs had some issues which
resulted in inaccurate results from du; however, I don't know of any
issues offhand which affected df's results.

	It's due to Resierfs housekeeping.  That represents a 2.2%
overhead, for filesystem housekeeping, which isn't too bad.  I'm a
little surprised it's that large.  I wouldn't be if it were ext2, and
would actually expect it to be more, but it's certainly within the realm
of reasonableness.

Have fun (if at all possible),

Thanks to all for your help. I'm using reiserfs and on SuSE 7.0, the
resize utility was hidden away in /sbin/resize_reiserfs.

I have resized the file system to 90G successfully but, there always a
but isn't there :-), df now reports a total of 88Gb.

Out of interest is this due to rounding or reisfer/LVM housekeeping ?

Andy,

The size of the LV and the size of the filesystem are two different
things.  I have always found that after increasing the size of the LV I
still needed to resize the filesystem. Depending on what filesystem you
are using, look at /sbin/resize_reiserfs or /usr/sbin/ext2resize.  That
should provide the result you are looking for.

	I'm assume the filesystem is an ext2 filesystem.  If it is, then
you need to find an ext2 resizing utility.  resize2fs is one such
utility.  I'm not sure where to find them on the web, but they
definitely exist.

	In general, the filesystem can only be resized when it's
offline.  The filesystem resizing utility updates all the filesystem
data structures to reflect the new size, and creates new data structures
in the new space.  df bases it's output on what the filesystem says
about the size, not the block device itself.

	It might be that SUSE came with a resizing utility.  I'd
actually rather expect it if they also packaged LVM.

Have fun (if at all possible),

I'm just starting out using LVM under SuSE 7.0. I created a logical
volume which was initially 30Gb but I then resized it to 90Gb (using
lvresize) spanning 3 physical volumes each of 30Gb.

Now, lvdisplay/vgdisplay shows the LV/VG size as 90Gb, but df still
lists the file system as 30Gb.

How can I get df to recognise the addtional space ?

Thanks in advance
