I'm running an Ubuntu Server VPS (nothing serious on there, just something for me to mess around with), that I installed when it only had one virtual disk of 20 GB. I have since upgraded the size of that volume to 20 GB. I was using LVM and I though it'd be easy to increase the size of the main volume to encompass the entire virtual drive. I tried that using the
lvextend command. It did extend it somewhat, but not to the amount I expected it to (in hindsight doing it in increments was probably stupid and unnecessary). Anyway, this is my current situation:
df -h shows:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev tmpfs 797M 936K 796M 1% /run /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-ubuntu--lv 19G 3.1G 15G 18% / tmpfs 3.9G 4.0K 3.9G 1% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/vda2 976M 100M 810M 11% /boot /dev/loop0 67M 67M 0 100% /snap/lxd/13300 /dev/loop1 92M 92M 0 100% /snap/core/8592 /dev/loop2 55M 55M 0 100% /snap/lxd/12211 /dev/loop3 90M 90M 0 100% /snap/core/8268 tmpfs 797M 0 797M 0% /run/user/1000
parted -l shows:
Model: Linux device-mapper (linear) (dm) Disk /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-ubuntu--lv: 20.4GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: loop Disk Flags: Number Start End Size File system Flags 1 0.00B 20.4GB 20.4GB ext4 Model: Virtio Block Device (virtblk) Disk /dev/vda: 53.7GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: gpt Disk Flags: Number Start End Size File system Name Flags 1 1049kB 2097kB 1049kB bios_grub 2 2097kB 1076MB 1074MB ext4 3 1076MB 21.5GB 20.4GB
parted -l result shows that there is a 53.7 GB device recognized, but just below that it says that it has a size of approx. 20 GB, with the results of
df -h coming to a total of roughly 33 GB (no idea how).
Is there a reasonable way to fix this, or should I just give up and re-install?
