I need to know the total size of alloted size (not actually used size) of all vgs and files an AIX node?

What is the command that gives you the total alloted size (sum of Total PP Size)?
Would  ' du -sg . ' work?

Hi ethanjohnsons,

There are a number of ways to do this.  The infamous "df -m" comes most quicly to mind.

Good Luck,

Hi ethanjohnsons,

Sorry.  I misunderstood.

Start with a nested call to lsvg.

lsvg -p `lsvg`

`lsvg` will pass all of the volume group names to an execution of lsvg with a -p parameter.

Good Luck,
