Hi there,


i have a question. Proxmox is telling me that my THIN-LVM getting more and more full.

I checked some virtual machines and I saw something weird (also on different hosts)


  --- Logical volume ---

  LV Path                /dev/pve/vm-196-disk-1

  LV Name                vm-196-disk-1

  VG Name                pve

  LV UUID                IOLFz3-QmhU-VqFr-nJlo-Ulrr-bsYX-PzJpgW

  LV Write Access        read/write

  LV Creation host, time host09, 2017-11-18 14:18:47 +0100

  LV Pool name           data

  LV Status              available

  # open                 1

  LV Size                500.00 GiB

  Mapped size            94.22%

  Current LE             128000

  Segments               1

  Allocation             inherit

  Read ahead sectors     auto

  - currently set to     256

  Block device           253:7


As I understand the LVM is using 94,22% of the available Storage (500GB). When I check in the VPS it self it show me


Filesystem                        Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/mapper/pve-vm--196--disk--1  492G   32G  435G   7% /


So only 32GB is used. What is happened there? There are no  Snapshots or something like this.
