List of all LVM command of HPUX tutorials we have seen before on KernelTalks. LVM commands related to physical volume, volume group, and logical volume.
What is LVM?
LVM is a Logical Volume Manager.
LVM is a volume manager in Unix-Linux systems. It used to manage your disks. LVM enables raw disks to be used as a data store, file system defined mount points. LVM helps to manage your disk volumes efficiently for performance and data integrity. VxVM i.e. Veritas Volume Manager is another volume manager that is as popular as LVM.
