We began this within LVM some time ago with a script we called 'fsadm'.



fsadm: Utility to resize or check the filesystem on a device

  fsadm [options] check device
    - Check the filesystem on device using fsck

  fsadm [options] resize device [new_size[BKMGTPE]]
    - Change the size of the filesystem on device to new_size

    -h | --help         Show this help message
    -v | --verbose      Be verbose
    -e | --ext-offline  unmount filesystem before ext2/ext3/ext4 resize
    -f | --force        Bypass sanity checks
    -n | --dry-run      Print commands without running them
    -l | --lvresize     Resize given device (if it is LVM device)
    -y | --yes          Answer "yes" at any prompts

  new_size - Absolute number of filesystem blocks to be in the filesystem,
             or an absolute size using a suffix (in powers of 1024).
             If new_size is not supplied, the whole device is used.
