Re: [linux-lvm] pvmove unable to move extents to multiple smaller pvs



Oh man, thanks. I did many many searches, but not on the list specifically.

Thanks, I'll read and try it!

Some more information that may be of use:
kernel 2.4.26 (vanilla) on gentoo on a P4 HT and SMP is enabled

It seems that everytime I do a "pvmove" it would be hard to always go to a contiguous pv the same size or bigger. This is why I wonder if I'm doing something wrong.




Scott, I think this was just discussed on the list last week. What you need to do is pvmove in smaller chunks. pvmove only sees the first available block of PE's.

So

pvmove /dev/diskdev:1-11194

Or something like that. Check the list archives from 2 or 3 days ago.



Thanks again [to anyone out there],
Scott Serr

I'm trying to use pvmove to shuffle things around. I have a pv with 22375 extents which I would like to remove from the system. I've added two (2) pvs with 11194 extents each. I get an error message:

Insufficient contiguous allocatable extents (11194) for logical volume pvmove0: 22375 required
Allocation for temporary pvmove LV


Now before you say, don't make it contiguous... It seems that it isn't already.

# lvchange --contiguous n /dev/data_vg/data_lv
Allocation policy of logical volume "data_lv" is already not contiguous

Is this normal? Do I really need all that contiguous space on 1 pv?

Thanks in advance,
Scott Serr
