Thank you for the suggestion, as LVM would be an excellent
system for controlling total vserver disk consumption.
However the largest concern remaining, on which I was
admittedly unclear, is that I'm trying to implement
per-user quotas in a system where users are perpetually
created and destroyed by web-based admin tools given
to the owner of the vserver.
Any suggestions? I would think it rather tedious from
an administrative standpoint to attempt to use LVM
per /home/user directories, whereas the best hack attempts
I could envision using the current vserver setup would
set quotas spanning all vservers and create overlap in chosen
user names and disk consumption (lacking virtualized quotas,
which I realize to be no small task). I had noticed one
other post to this list requesting quotas support on the
/dev/hdv a few weeks back.
