    lvresize

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           lvresize  [--alloc AllocationPolicy] [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug]
           [-h|-?|--help] [--noudevsync]  [-i|--stripes  Stripes  [-I|--stripesize
           StripeSize]]             {-l|--extents            [+]LogicalExtentsNum-
           ber[%{VG|LV|PVS|FREE|ORIGIN}] | -L|--size [+]LogicalVolumeSize[bBsSkKm-
           MgGtTpPeE]}  [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] LogicalVolumePath [PhysicalVol-
           umePath[:PE[-PE]]...]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           lvresize allows you to resize a logical volume.  Be careful when reduc-
           ing  a  logical  volume's  size,  because  data  in the reduced part is
           lost!!!  You should therefore ensure that any filesystem on the  volume
           is  shrunk  first so that the extents that are to be removed are not in
           use.  Resizing snapshot logical volumes (see lvcreate(8)  for  informa-
           tion about creating snapshots) is supported as well.  But to change the
           number of copies in a mirrored logical volume use lvconvert(8).
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           See lvm for common options.
    
           --noudevsync
                  Disable udev synchronisation. The  process  will  not  wait  for
                  notification  from  udev.   It will continue irrespective of any
                  possible udev processing in the background.  You should only use
                  this if udev is not running or has rules that ignore the devices
                  LVM2 creates.
    
           -l, --extents [+|-]LogicalExtentsNumber[%{VG|LV|PVS|FREE|ORIGIN}]
                  Change or set the  logical  volume  size  in  units  of  logical
                  extents.   With  the  +  or - sign the value is added to or sub-
                  tracted from the actual size of the logical volume  and  without
                  it,  the value is taken as an absolute one.  The number can also
                  be expressed as a percentage of the total space  in  the  Volume
                  Group  with the suffix %VG, relative to the existing size of the
                  Logical Volume with the suffix  %LV,  as  a  percentage  of  the
                  remaining  free space of the PhysicalVolumes on the command line
                  with the suffix %PVS, as a  percentage  of  the  remaining  free
                  space in the Volume Group with the suffix %FREE, or (for a snap-
                  shot) as a percentage of the total space in the  Origin  Logical
                  Volume with the suffix %ORIGIN.
    
           -L, --size [+|-]LogicalVolumeSize[bBsSkKmMgGtTpPeE]
                  Change  or set the logical volume size in units of megabytes.  A
                  size suffix of M for megabytes, G  for  gigabytes,  T  for  ter-
                  abytes, P for petabytes or E for exabytes is optional.  With the
                  + or - sign the value is added to or subtracted from the  actual
                  size of the logical volume and without it, the value is taken as
                  an absolute one.
    
           -i, --stripes Stripes
                  Gives the number of stripes to use when extending a Logical Vol-
                  ume.   Defaults to whatever the last segment of the Logical Vol-
