Re: [linux-lvm] Data alignment



Then I waste 512k on the MBR, and another 512k on the pv header.
I'd like to avoid that if possible and it seems like --dataalignoffset
should let me do that, but it doesn't accept negative numbers.

   1 MB "wasted" on a 160,000 MB SDD = 99.999375% efficiency.
Inversely, that's 0.000625% "wasted", worth roughly 1/5 of
1 penny US, or $0.0002.  Your time spent thinking about it - $25.
Also, 10,000 sysadmins on this list X 2 minutes = 3333 hours X
$100/hour = $333,333.  I'd burn the 1MB and move on.
