Description Corey Marthaler 2007-07-26 19:37:43 UTC
Description of problem:
We (lvm folks) recommend that snapshots should be roughly 10% of the origin
volume size, give or take depending on how much the user believes that origin
will change. 

The current default setting for a snapshot vol in conga is "the rest of the VG".
So if you have a 100G origin volume and 200G left in the VG your snapshot will
be created twice as big as the origin volume.
