Show volumes attached to C9 on editor view



I want to add space to my C9 EC2 machine by adding a new volume instead of expanding the current volume.

Today I can toggle the option "Show home in favorites" to browse the files on the home root volume, but after I attach the new volume, can't find the way to browse the content from the C9 file tree browser. ( I can access it from the command line).

Is there a way to do this or I would need to keep adding space to my root volume instead?.

You will need to add to the existing volume. Here are the commands to make it happen.

## Assume a role with permissions

REGION=$(curl -s | sed 's/\(.*\)[a-z]/\1/')
VOLUMEID=$(aws ec2 describe-instances --instance-id $INSTANCEID --query "Reservations[0].Instances[0].BlockDeviceMappings[0].Ebs.VolumeId" --output text --region $REGION)

aws ec2 modify-volume --volume-id $VOLUMEID --size $SIZE --region $REGION

Wait until finished, check with this:

aws ec2 describe-volumes-modifications --region $REGION --volume-id $VOLUMEID

After finished

sudo growpart /dev/nvme0n1 1
df -h
sudo xfs_growfs /dev/nvme0n1p1
df -h

  • Thanks for your answer! The volumen is already working and accessible from the command line, the issue is with the C9 editor, can't point to browse files on the attached volume

  • Yes, if you need more space and you want to see it from C9, you will need to expand the root volume.
