NAME

       lvresize - resize a logical volume

SYNOPSIS

       lvresize  [--alloc AllocationPolicy] [-A/--autobackup y/n] [-d/--debug]
       [-h/-?/--help]  [-i/--stripes  Stripes  [-I/--stripesize   StripeSize]]
       {-l/--extents         [+]LogicalExtentsNumber        |        -L/--size
       [+]LogicalVolumeSize[kKmMgGtT]}       [-t/--test]        [-v/--verbose]
       LogicalVolumePath [PhysicalVolumePath...]

DESCRIPTION

       lvresize  allows  you  to  resize  a  logical  volume.  Be careful when
       reducing a logical volume’s size, because data in the reduced  part  is
       lost!!!   You should therefore ensure that any filesystem on the volume
       is shrunk first so that the extents that are to be removed are  not  in
       use.    Resizing   snapshot   logical   volumes  (see  lvcreate(8)  for
       information about creating snapshots) is supported as well.

OPTIONS

       See lvm for common options.

       -l, --extents [+/-]LogicalExtentsNumber
              Change or set the  logical  volume  size  in  units  of  logical
              extents.   With  the  +  or  -  sign  the  value  is added to or
              subtracted from the  actual  size  of  the  logical  volume  and
              without it, the value is taken as an absolute one.

       -L, --size [+/-]LogicalVolumeSize[kKmMgGtT]
              Change  or set the logical volume size in units of megabytes.  A
              size suffix of M  for  megabytes,  G  for  gigabytes  or  T  for
              terabytes  is optional.  With the + or - sign the value is added
              to or subtracted from the actual size of the logical volume  and
              without it, the value is taken as an absolute one.

       -i, --stripes Stripes
              Gives  the  number  of  stripes  to use when extending a Logical
              Volume.  Defaults to whatever the last segment  of  the  Logical
              Volume  uses.  Not applicable to LVs using the original metadata
              LVM format, which must use a single value throughout.

       -I, --stripesize StripeSize
              Gives the  number  of  kilobytes  for  the  granularity  of  the
              stripes.   Defaults  to whatever the last segment of the Logical
              Volume uses.  Not applicable to LVs using the original  metadata
              LVM format, which must use a single value throughout.
              StripeSize must be 2^n (n = 2 to 9)
