Update: See this link to download a copy of the script: http
Here is a preview of a script I have been working on. It gathers information from the AIX LVM and produces a graphical representation on the configuration. More info to come over the next week or two as I finish up the script.
It visually shows how volume groups, physical volumes, logical volumes, and filesystems all fit together. I'm a visual learner/thinker and diagrams of configurations like this really help me. Hopefully this will make it easier for people to more easily understand their LVM configurations, troubleshoot their setup when issues arise, and help people learn the AIX LVM.
