Re: [linux-lvm] dynamic lvm snapshots (auto-resize)



I think that's being worked on / beta. Until it's ready, we implemented
it in a daemon that is 49 lines of Perl. This particular implementation 
is set to match our environment but you can modify it to your needs:

#!/usr/bin/perl

use Getopt::Long;
use lib 'lib';
use Linux::LVM;

my $lvname;
my $usage = "usage: $0 --lvname lvname\n";
die $usage unless ( GetOptions ( "lvname=s" => \$lvname ) );
die $usage unless ($lvname);

my $ppid = getppid();
while ( -e "/proc/$ppid") {
  &check_snaps($lvname);
  sleep(60);
}

sub check_snaps {
  my $lvname = shift();
  for ($snapnum = 2; $snapnum >= 0; $snapnum--) {
    if (-e "/dev/clones/${lvname}_snap${snapnum}") {
      my %lv = get_lv_info("/dev/clones/${lvname}_snap${snapnum}");
      next unless ($lv{'lv_name'});
      unless ($lv{'allocated_to_snapshot'}) {
          system('lvremove', '-f', "clones/${lvname}_snap${snapnum}");
          next;
      }
      if ($lv{'allocated_to_snapshot'} > 80) {
          print "live extending ${lvname}_snap${snapnum}\n";
          system('lvextend', '-f', '-l', '+20%LV', "clones/${lvname}_snap${snapnum}");
      }
    }
  }
}
