RE: [linux-lvm] determining lv from mount point



The df command will already do that.  For instance, on my machine, if I do:

[klmontg klmontg klmontg]$ df /opt
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/vg01/opt          4194172   1610880   2583292  39% /opt

It gives me the filesystem, etc.

So, you could do something like this:

#!/bin/bash

if [[ ! -d ${1} ]]
then
  echo "error: ${1} is not a valid mount point"
  exit 1
fi

df ${1} | grep -v ^Filesystem | awk '{ print $1 }'

Subject: [linux-lvm] determining lv from mount point



I'm trying to update my backup script (a tweaked version of hostdump.sh from
backupcentral.com) to use snapshots.  My machine has a mix of 
normal ext3 and ext3 on lvm filesystems.  What I'm looking for is an easy
way from a shell script to determine the lv from the mount point. The ideal
thing would be a shell function that takes the mount point as an argument
and returns the associated logical volume, or an error if the filesystem
doesn't use lvm.

Suggestions?

thanks,
galen
