Re: [linux-lvm] 15 snapshot limit?

It's MAX LV 0 which I suppose means unlimited (or default?) - though I can't seem to find it documented anywhere. I'll check out Milan's upgrades. A "magic formula" sure would be nice, as an unpredictable limit on the number of snapshots is pretty annoying for a customer product. I wonder if something is following a "grab half of what's left" strategy; that would explain a near-independence of memory. There ought to be a way to require ALL resources to be statically assigned.

I followed this thread from the beginning and I have a simple question.
What is your Maximum Logical Volume number ?
Check it with `vgdisplay' at the "MAX LV" line.

If this is the real problem, you can change it with `vgchange'.
