5.3.2. Moving the Data

You can move all the used physical extents in /dev/sdc1 to /dev/sdb1 with the pvmove command. The pvmove command can take a long time to execute.
[root@tng3-1 ~]# pvmove /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdb1
  /dev/sdc1: Moved: 14.7%
  /dev/sdc1: Moved: 30.3%
  /dev/sdc1: Moved: 45.7%
  /dev/sdc1: Moved: 61.0%
  /dev/sdc1: Moved: 76.6%
  /dev/sdc1: Moved: 92.2%
  /dev/sdc1: Moved: 100.0%
After moving the data, you can see that all of the space on /dev/sdc1 is free.
[root@tng3-1 ~]# pvscan
  PV /dev/sda1   VG myvg   lvm2 [17.15 GB / 0    free]
