How to add logical volume for swap in Redhat Linux

In our last post we have seen how to add a file for swap space.
In this post we will see how to add a LVM2 Logical Volume as swap.
Here we have a VG name VG1 in which we will create a volume LV1 of 1GB.
# lvcreate VG1 -n LV1 -L 1G
Format the new swap space using mkswap:
# mkswap /dev/VG1/LV1
Update /etc/fstab file with below entry:
# /dev/VG1/LV1 swap swap defaults 0 0
Enable the extended logical volume:
# swapon -v /dev/VG1/LV1
