How to manage LVM volumes on CentOS / RHEL 7 with System Storage Manager


Logical Volume Manager (LVM) is an extremely flexible disk management scheme, allowing you to create and resize logical disk volumes off of multiple physical hard drives with no downtime. However, its powerful features come with the price of a somewhat steep learning curves, with more involved steps to set up LVM using multiple command line tools, compared to managing traiditional disk partitions.

Here is good news for CentOS/RHEL users. The latest CentOS/RHEL 7 now comes with System Storage Manager (aka ssm) which is a unified command line interface developed by Red Hat for managing all kinds of storage devices. Currently there are three kinds of volume management backends available for ssm: LVM, Btrfs, and Crypt.
