Why does Vertica 6 not support LVM?


The vertica 6.0 supported platforms document states:

"Note that Vertica 6 does not support Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM)."

Why is this?


Our concern with LVM is file corruption. For Vertica database data and catalog disks, we do not test it and have concerns with (and have seen) file corruption.

There is a product feature request to support LVM but no target date.

    I have just checked with Vertica Support, they have no record of a feature request for LVM. I have asked them to raise one.

    There is an existing feature request for this, but it has not been targeted for any release at the moment.
