Re: [linux-lvm] [RFE] lvm-1.0.3 - progress bar similar to e2fsck for pvmove


are you sure you didn't use the "-v" option of pvmove?

Without that option pvmove typically display 6-7 lines.
With that option it displays some more information plus a line for
every extent moved.

Well, as with e2fsck and the like such bars heavily depend on total system
load and just make you feel believe that there's progress, which ps can
help do as well :)

We'll do something about it in LVM2.
