Online relayout

Online relayout allows you to convert between storage layouts in VxVM, with uninterrupted data access. Typically, you would do this to change the redundancy or performance characteristics of a volume. VxVM adds redundancy to storage either by duplicating the data (mirroring) or by adding parity (RAID-5). Performance characteristics of storage in VxVM can be changed by changing the striping parameters, which are the number of columns and the stripe width.
