Hi there,

According to the official RedHat documentation here, in order to increase the size of an XFS file system, you could use the following command:

xfs_growfs /mount/point -D size

The -D size option grows the file system to the specified size (expressed in file system blocks). Without the -D size option, xfs_growfs will grow the file system to the maximum size supported by the device.
