Linux Soup XII.2: LVM Fundamentals and CGroups

Date and Time

Wednesday, April 18, 2012 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm


MIT Building E-51, Room 335
Christoph Doerbeck - christoph blu org
Gordon Keegan


Christoph discusses LVM volume management, and Gordon discusses CGroups for resource management


Topics: LVM fundamentals + bonus coverage on CGroups Part1: Overview of Logical Volume Management. Learn how to manage your storage and protect your data with LVM2. Add disks, create volume groups & logical volumes. Then protect your data by leveraging the native RAID capabilities of the modern LVM2. Part2: And for the second part of this presentation, learn about the new resource management features of Linux called CGroups. Restrict processes to limited resources by establishing CGroup policies. The plan is to utilize RHEV-M (demonstrated in March 2012 for BLU) and provide lab sessions which attendees can connect to via VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure).
