Excellent LVM Tutorial for Beginners or Experts

I ran across a great PDF from this year’s Red Hat Summit in Boston. Hosted by Christoph Doerbech and Jonathan Brassow the lab covers the following topics:\

  • What is LVM? What are filesystems? etc..
  • Creating PVs, VGs, LVs.
  • LVM Striping and Mirroring.
  • LVM Raid.
  • LVM Snapshots (and reverting).
  • LVM Sparse Volumes (a snapshot of /dev/zero).
  • LVM Thin LVs and new snapshots.

Check out the PDF here . If that link ceases to work at some point I have it hosted here as well.

Hope everyone can use this as a great learning tool!
