RE: [linux-lvm] Why is part of a PV not usable?



Thanks. I guess I have just always used a PE size or the default and the
PV size was just the right size, because this was the first time I had
seen this. This was on a customer's system that was connected to a SAN.

Hi Jack,

Your PE size is 4096KB and your PV's size is 2559x4096KB+3.98 MB.
In other words, your PV's size is not an exact multiple of the PE size
and
all you lose is always less than the PE.
