I just got a new SSD, and I'm looking for advice on how best to incorporate it into my existing LVM setup. I have the following logical volumes (mounted at the obvious places):
# lvs LV VG Attr LSize Origin Snap% Move Log Copy% Convert home maingroup -wi-ao 75.00g opt maingroup -wi-ao 4.00g swap1 maingroup -wi-ao 1.00g swap2 maingroup -wi-ao 1.00g tmp maingroup -wi-ao 5.00g usr maingroup -wi-ao 25.00g var maingroup -wi-ao 15.00g
I've got 108.26g in the physical volumes associated with the new SSD. I'm going to use
pvmove to migrate some of these LVs to the SSD. The question is, which LVs to move?
The machine in question is basically a home workstation. I do some light development (source code lives in
home), run some very low-load server processes (apache, etc.), and do a bit of image and video editing from time to time. I run Gentoo on x86 if that makes a difference.
