Hello everyone - I am trying to find out what the numbers represent in the
output of a "dmsetup status" command on a LiveCD:
[root@localhost ~]# dmsetup status
live-osimg-min: 0 4194304 snapshot *1272/1272 16*
live-rw: 0 4194304 snapshot *7568/1048576 40*
I've asked a Superuser question
but it doesn't seem to be getting any activity. The man pages for dmsetup
only talk about the "--target" option and don't talk about explicit labels
for the numbers - does anyone know what they are?
I'm especially interested in the bottom far right numbers, the 7568 /
1048576 - that's about a gibabyte and my LiveCD remounts itself read only
as soon as those numbers meet. The smaller value seems to tick up much
faster when there are reads and writes to the root filesystem.
Can anyone help? Is there a way to increase it from a gibabyte up to
something more reasonable to keep my LiveCD from hanging itself every time
I copy files in or out?
