In have a VG with a LV
vms which contains mostly vmware
vmdk-files. The VG has one big harddrive as PV and a SSD.
I wonder if there is a way to move the
vmdk-files I currently need to the SSD in a transparent manner. The Files do not grow (or only very less)
pvmove /dev/sdb1:1000-1999 /dev/sdc1 I can move the extends. The question is how to get the list of extends. The Files do not grow (or only very less) anymore, so one manual move would be ok. I see 2 steps:
- Map the files on the filesystem (ext4 or xfs) to addresses on the LV
- Map the LV adresses to extents addresses on the source PV for usage with
Do you think this is possible?
