[linux-lvm] Re: Why can't I extend a LV after many times extends?



Another problem after I change the buf size

1. After some lvextend operations.. when my lv size is about 48G

   my vg is lost suddently...

2. I think perhaps it has some relation about the default size
mempool size of "10*1024" is not big enough, I changed it to "200*1024"

      (lib/config/config.c line 88)

3. Now when I lvextend, it complains :

      VG amd64 metadata too large for circular buffer

      (lib/format_text/format_text.c line 363)

Any advice?
