lvpoll is an internal command used by lvmpolld(8) to monitor and
complete lvconvert(8) and pvmove(8) operations. lvpoll itself does
not initiate these operations and you should never normally need to
invoke it directly.
LogicalVolume The Logical Volume undergoing conversion or, in the
case of pvmove, the name of the internal pvmove Logical Volume (see
See lvm(8) for common options.
Mandatory option. pvmove refers to a pvmove operation that is
moving data. convert refers to an operation that is
increasing the number of redundant copies of data maintained
by a mirror. merge indicates a merge operation that doesn't
involve thin volumes. merge_thin indicates a merge operation
involving thin snapshots. pvmove(8) and lvconvert(8) describe
how to initiate these operations.
Abort pvmove in progress. See pvmove(8).
Used when the polling operation needs to handle missing PVs to
be able to continue. This can happen when lvconvert(8) is
repairing a mirror with one or more faulty devices.
-i, --interval Seconds
Report progress at regular intervals
Resume polling of a pvmove operation identified by the Logical Volume
lvm lvpoll --polloperation pvmove vg00/pvmove0
Abort the same pvmove operation:
lvm lvpoll --polloperation pvmove --abort vg00/pvmove0
To find out the name of the pvmove Logical Volume resulting from an
original pvmove /dev/sda1 command you may use the following lvs
command. (Remove the parentheses from the LV name.)
lvs -a -S move_pv=/dev/sda1
Resume polling of mirror conversion vg00/lvmirror:
lvm lvpoll --polloperation convert vg00/lvmirror
Complete mirror repair:
lvm lvpoll --polloperation convert vg/damaged_mirror--handlemissingpvs
Process snapshot merge:
lvm lvpoll --polloperation merge vg/snapshot_old
Finish thin snapshot merge:
lvm lvpoll --polloperation merge_thin vg/thin_snapshot
