Re: [dm-devel] [linux-lvm] New LVM2 release 2.02.89: Thinly-provisioned logical volumes




When I used a VG of 1.82TB to create a 100GB pool, it faild.
The err mesg  "cannot allocte memory",however, my host's meminfo:

[root host2 persistent-data]# cat /proc/meminfo
MemTotal:       10234416 kB
MemFree:         9685956 kB

whether I should configure somewhere to make it work well(create bigger pool)?

This is the mesgs:
