Add space to Red Hat directory

Greetings,
Below are the results of running df -h on our red hat server.

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/rootvg-rootvol
                      4.0G  3.5G  310M  92% /
tmpfs                  16G     0   16G   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1             194M   73M  111M  40% /boot
/dev/mapper/rootvg-homevol
                      2.0G  1.2G  694M  64% /home
/dev/mapper/rootvg-tmpvol
                      4.5G   18M  4.2G   1% /tmp
/dev/mapper/rootvg-varvol
                       22G  3.8G   17G  19% /var
/dev/mapper/rootvg-datavol
                       16G  2.9G   13G  19% /data
/dev/mapper/rootvg-sqlvol
                      142G  135G     0 100% /var/lib/mysql
/dev/mapper/rootvg-logvol
                       16G  248M   15G   2% /var/log

How do I add more space to the /var/lib/mysql (its at 100%) using lvm? Thank you.

Ok, you can add up to about 400GiB to your LV. For sake of example I add 100GiB, change this to your needs.
All this can be done on a running system. Also, I assume you have an EXT filesystem on the volume sqlvol? Please make sure with mount; if not then do not run resize2fs!
$ lvextend -L +100G /dev/mapper/rootvg-sqlvol
$ resize2fs /dev/mapper/rootvg-sqlvol
$ df -h /dev/mapper/rootvg-sqlvol

Open in new window

resize2fs will claim all available space on the LV.

If you need to add more space, then you would first need to add a new PV the your rootvg; in general this means some downtime.

Please have a look at:
vgdisplay
witch shows you available space in the Volume Group. Is there anything left?
