Re: [linux-lvm] How to extend the file system online?

You can try ReiserFS, which does allow to be resized while mounted.

Additional comments:


ReiserFS 3 can be enlarged while mounted, but shrunk only when unmounted.

ReiserFS 4 can not yet be resized at all.

EXT2/3 can be enlarged online with a kernel patch and utils from
http://ext2resize.sourceforge.net/

XFS must be mounted while enlarging but can AFAIK not be shrunk, even off-line.

JFS must be mounted while enlarging but can not be shrunk, same as XFS.


Some more info is in the HOW-TO: http://linux.co.uk/howtos/LVM-HOWTO/extendlv.html
