What is "/dev/mapper/system-root_lv"?

Hi experts, after installation of the OS and the SAP HANA. I’m wondering how did the system created “/dev/mapper/system-root_lv”. Because I’m worried of the increase of the size. How can I adjust it?

Hope to hear positive response from you.


It’s extremely increasing.

By its name that sounds like the LVM logical volume (LV) created for the
root filesystem, meaning the filesystem that holds everything not
partitioned separately within there.

It should grow as you do install the system, or additional software, or
create additional files, unless you create those additional files in other
filesystem partitions/volumes.

Good luck.
