NAME

geom_linux_lvm — GEOM based Linux LVM logical volume mapping

SYNOPSIS

To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configura‐ tion file: options GEOM_LINUX_LVM Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): geom_linux_lvm_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

The geom_linux_lvm framework provides support for mapping Linux LVM volumes to GEOM providers. geom_linux_lvm currently supports linear stripes with segments on one or more physical disks. The parser is able to read LVM2 Text Format metadata, the logical volumes will be assembled and made available under /dev/linux_lvm/. The metadata is read-only, log‐ ical volumes cannot be allocated or resized.

EXAMPLES

To view which geom_linux_lvm devices are available: # geom linux_lvm list Geom name: vg1 Providers: 1. Name: linux_lvm/vg1-home Mediasize: 4294967296 (4.0G) Sectorsize: 512 Mode: r0w0e0 2. Name: linux_lvm/vg1-logs Mediasize: 4294967296 (4.0G) Sectorsize: 512 Mode: r0w0e0 Consumers: 1. Name: ada0s1 Mediasize: 80023716864 (75G) Sectorsize: 512 Mode: r0w0e0
