Re: [Linux-lvm] Need help in understanding the logical to physical mapping by LVM

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Ray,

I see that the /etc/lvm/backup has only one file which gives some basic information about the physical volumes and logical volumes.

I am looking for some hints on where to look in the LVM code if I want to see the entire sequence of address translation from a logical address given by the application to the physical address on the underlying RAID5..
Any pointers to a document or paper explaining this would also be appreciated !!

Look in /etc/lvm/backup/* to see the actual map.
