Re: [linux-lvm] Best Practices deploying LVM



   I don't know about a whitepaper, but I can address
your example.

he makes one volume group for each logical volume (more or less)

   If each one has one volume, that's not exactly a volume
GROUP, is it?  If groups and volumes are basically synomous,
he gives up all the benfits of groups.  In fact, he gives
up most of the benefits of logical volumes, since each PV
has to be in one group, and each VG is one LV, you're left
with one LV per PV - might as well just use partitions
directly.

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for some whitepapper or similar document to find any kind of
best practices using LVM.

For example, usually i make only one volume group in each server and inside it I create different logical volumes for different purposes, but talking with one colleague, we discover that he makes one volume group for each logical volume (more or less)... so my final question is: in performance
terms, what configuration is more efficient and why?

Please excuse my writen english, but I don't use it very often.

Thanks for your attention,
Abraham Pérez
