Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 249579
RFE: add zoom or labels for selection of small vgs via graphical display
Last modified: 2009-04-16 18:54:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Logical volumes less then 1.4 GB will not show up in the vg icon and thus you
will be unable to see their attributes or re-configure them.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This happened with a 270G volume group, as the volume group gets smaller/bigger
the size of the lv which will not show up gets smaller/bigger, thus this bug has
to due with a percent of the total vg space avail.
If you turn off graphical mode, a list of volume names will show up instead of
the cylinder diagram, and you can select the volumes from there.
Closing as not a bug. Please reopen if turning off graphical mode doesn't work,
or file a RFE if it's not good enough.
The fact that there is a work around for this issue doesn't make it any less of
a bug. A user will presumably be using the graphical display and if they create
a small lv, they will not see it. What will they think? Probably that the
creation failed as it's not displayed and they may or may not know to switch to
the text view to look.
If the graphical display can't be trusted then why have it?
I'll give you that this is a very low priority bug, and that the argument could
even be made that a customer will never be creating lvs that small (but who
knows with small snapshot volumes), but it is still a bug.
If you still want to close this, then close it wontfix.
