For example, the command:
vgcreate -s 16M vg1 /dev/sda7 /dev/sda8
creates a Volume Group, vg1. Am I right in saying that
extents are like buckets?
i.e. we're setting a 16M bucket size?
And can anyone refer me to some simple documentation on
extents. E.g. this page:
This extent is the minimum amount by which the logical volume may be increased or decreased in size.
but doesn't say why it's called an
extent, whether a Volume Group extent is the same as a Logical Volume extent, etc...
