To shink an ext3 filesystem, it'll have to be offline.
Start by identifying and terminating any applications with files open on
/home using "fuser -vm /home/".
Once there are no open files, you can unmount the filesystem and use
"fsadm resize /dev/mapper/vg_web-lv_home755G 150G" to shrink the filesystem.
