pvmove is pretty reliable. However, I would probably make a backup before doing any sort of operation that would grow/shrink/move a file system.

How safe is pvmove in LVM2 when being operated on live volumes? I understand a backup is always a good policy as nothing can be 100% safe, but is the command known to produce unreliable results when used on a live filesystem?
