Re: [linux-lvm] vgchange -ay Killed



The code has not been optimised for large numbers of LVs.

Use the latest dm/lvm2 versions for a start as there's a memory
leak in your libdevmapper.

Each device device uses up a fixed amount of (unswappable) kernel 
memory, and when all your memory is used out you can't have any 
more devices.

Use standard diagnostic tools to work out which limit you're hitting.
(top; ps; slabtop; sysreq; strace etc.)
