comment Increase Space of /usr directory in Cent OS
on re-reading, i may have misunderstood "space" to imply "free space". -- what does lvs and pvs give ? you should be able to expand the /dev/mapper/vg00-usr logical volume if you have some space space with lvextend

fdisk is saying your disk is 100gb in size, not 100gb is free. Is this machine a virtual machine guest ? xvda tends to suggest it is. If so you can add anouther xen disk volume to the machine
