[linux-lvm] LVM iostat readings



Anyone?

__________________

Hi,

I've had a good look around for answers but found nothing useful.

I've collected data using iostat from a production server. I've got 3 disks stitched together as a linear LVM, 250GB+500GB+500GB, with data on only the first 2 disks at the moment.

Under load, the PV's get busy showing high utilisation (%util) and quite high queue depths (avgqu-sz). the LV however hits 100% utilisation and the queue depth gets huge! Performance becomes poor at these times, suggesting the values are representative of what is actually happening.

Can someone help me understand what's going on here please? Could LVM be causing a bottleneck, or is a physical bottleneck causing this?

Thanks,
Lyn Rees.
