[linux-lvm] striping questions



Howdy everyone,

I've got a couple questions regarding striping....

1. Is it possible to convert a LV from linear to striped mapping or would I have to create a new LV with striped mapping and move data from the old LV to the new?

2. Is it better to stripe with device-mapper or LVM or a combination of both.  We have 77 33.1GB LUNs that we will be creating many GFS file systems from.  Our current thought is to have all of the LUNs in one VG for easier management.  I'm looking for pros and cons of striping with device-mapper vs. LVM, for 1) performance and 2) manageability (adding future LUNs and extending file systems, etc...).

TIA
Jeremy
