LVM RAID

  • https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/LVM#Different_storage_allocation_methods

    It is not possible to stripe an existing volume, nor reshape the stripes across more/less physical volumes, nor to convert to a different RAID level/linear volume. A stripe set can be mirrored. It is possible to extend a stripe set across additional physical volumes, but they must be added in multiples of the original stripe set (which will effectively linearly append a new stripe set).

    • RAID1,4,5,6でreshapeなどが使えないのは結構厳しい制限に思える。MD-RAIDでは可能なので、そのうちサポートされるかも知れない

LVM with MD-RAID

  • mdadm と LVM で作る、全手動 BeyondRAID もどき - 守破離

    ざっくり言うと、RAID1 か RAID5 でHDDを横断する領域をいくつか作って、その領域をまとめあげる事で大容量のストレージを作る感じですね。 これのイケてる点は HDD が 1 台消えても大丈夫な上に、状況によっては HDD を 1 台交換するだけでストレージの容量がアップすること。 最低 2 台の HDD を大容量の物に交換すれば確実に容量が増えます。

Thin provisioning

  • (CentOS) LVM thinpool snapshots broken in 6.5?

    For the people who run into this as well: This is apparently a feature and not a bug. Thin provisioning snapshots are no longer automatically activated and a "skip activation" flag is set during creation by default. One has to add the "-K" option to "lvchange -ay <snapshot-volume>" to have lvchange ignore this flag and activate the volume for real. "-k" can be used on lvcreate to not add this flag to the volume. See man lvchange/lvcreate for more details. /etc/lvm/lvm.conf also contains a "auto_set_activation_skip" option now that controls this.

    Apparently this was changed in 6.5 but the changes were not mentioned in the release notes.

    • thin snapshotはデフォルトではinactiveで作成され、activateするにはlvchangeに'-K'オプションが必要となった('-k y -K'とするのが良さそう)
