NAME Grow the GBrowse volume by the requested amount


Grow /opt/gbrowse by another 100 gigabytes

  % 100


This script grows /opt/gbrowse by the requested number of gigabytes. The single argument must be a number between 1 and 1000, which indicates the number of GB to grow the volume by (not the new size of the volume).

It works by creating a new EBS volume and adding it to the logical volume manager (LVM2) for this machine. The filesystem is then extended to the desired size.


Options can be abbreviated. For example, you can use -a for --access_key:

      --access_key   EC2 access key
      --secret_key   EC2 secret key


The following environment variables are used if the corresponding options are not present:

 EC2_ACCESS_KEY     your access key
 EC2_SECRET_KEY     your secret key


VM::EC2, VM::EC2::Staging::Manager
