NAMElvmdump - create lvm2 information dumps for diagnostic purposes
SYNOPSISlvmdump [options] [-d directory]
DESCRIPTIONlvmdump is a tool to dump various information concerning LVM2. By default, it creates a tarball suitable for submission along with a problem report.
The content of the tarball is as follows:
- -h — print help message
- -a — advanced collection
- WARNING: if lvm is already hung, then this script may hang as well if -a is used
- -m — gather LVM metadata from the PVs
- This option generates a 1:1 dump of the metadata area from all PVs visible to the system, which can cause the dump to increase in size considerably. However, the metadata dump may represent a valuable diagnostic resource.
- -d directory — dump into a directory instead of tarball
- By default, lvmdump will produce a single compressed tarball containing all the information. Using this option, it can be instructed to only produce the raw dump tree, rooted in directory.
- -c — if clvmd is running, gather cluster data as well
- The LVM2 binary to use. Defaults to "lvm". Sometimes you might need to set this to "/sbin/lvm.static", for example.
- The dmsetup binary to use. Defaults to "dmsetup".
