Re: [linux-lvm] Is there any help for external locking of LVM?



Thanks, and could you please think about my second question.

I see that file_locking do not provide query_resource function, is it safe
for me to do pvmove with NFS based locking file? And what does
query_resource should do?

Hiya

There's no documentation on writing locking plugins but it's fairly 
straightforward, in principle at least ;-)

Have a look at LVM2/lib/locking/no_locking.c and add your custom locking 
parts in there. You DO need to call the lvm libraries parts or nothing 
will happen.

If your locking library is generally useful I hope you will share it 
with the community.
