Determine raw partition size in AIX


Recently I had an issue where, I need to determine the size one of raw partition available on AIX server.




After spending few hours got the solution. I am sharing this with you.

getconf is the command used for getting raw partition size.

There are multiple ways to get the partition size but those all works for the disk is part of volume group.

Below I am running it for /dev/partition_10

getconf DISK_SIZE /dev/partition_10


6144 is in MB which is equal to 6GB.

This is not that difficult to find the solution if available multiple solutions on internet. So make it available ………  sharing with your friends 🙂
