Alert rule: TopoLVMVolumeGroupNearFull

Please consider opening a PR to improve this runbook if you gain new information about causes of the alert, or how to debug or resolve the alert. Click "Edit this Page" in the top right corner to create a PR directly on GitHub.


This alert fires when the utilization of a TopoLVM volume group is higher than 95% of its capacity. To resolve this alert, unused pv should be deleted or the volume group size must be increased.

Otherwise, investigate if this node has logical volumes not associated with a persistent volume.

Steps for debugging

Check for lingering volumes

Check if there are logicalvolumes that aren’t associated with a persistentvolume.

1 local-pv-* are from the Openshift Local Storage Operator (usually created by rook-ceph cluster)
2 PV only listed on the "right" side are from non-TopoLVM storage classes.
3 PV only listed on the "left" side are logical volumes that aren’t associated with a persistent volume anymore.

Unassociated logicalvolumes <3> might be deleted, best to check with customer first.
