Mount a new partition

Here’s how I mounted var to a new partition

#After adding the disk, use fdisk to check that the disk has been created
#fdisk -l
mkfs -t ext4 /dev/xvdf
mount /dev/xvdf /var/

#Modify the /etc/fstab entry so a health check is performed on the disk on bootup
vi /etc/fstab
/dev/xvdf /var  ext4    defaults 1 1
