Maintaining a smooth operation requires careful storage management, as a full filesystem will cause your server to cease. Fortunately, Linux servers come with a plethora of storage management capabilities, some of which are the envy of competing systems. It would not be possible to perform our jobs as Linux server administrators without innovations such as LVM. In this chapter, we dove into these resources and learned some storage management tricks. We went through a wide range of topics, including how to create and manage partitions, mount and unmount volumes, work with the
fstab file, use LVM, and check disk use.
In the next chapter, we will discuss logging configuration and remote logging.
