Extend disk for CentOS in XenServer

I'm not sure how to handle this, as I don't really deal much with Linux, however we have a CentOS server built on XenServer and I need to add another 60 GB disk space to it - extend the volume.
Once I add the disk to the VM, how do I add this to the actual CentOS server itself? Are there tools within the OS itself to extend the volume?
Many thanks in advance for your help.

yes you can extend natively
are you using  LVM?  not sure?  what is the output of df -h ?

If you aren't using LVM, you'll need to run a gparted Live Disc to repartition the expanded disk.  If you have LVM, then it's relatively quick and easy with LVM tools.

not necessarily
if the added space is right after the partition to be extended then it can be done with tune2fs

Yes, I see a lot of volumes with swap set after / (root), so I have to run gparted.
