DESCRIPTION

OPTIONS

See lvm for common options.
--aligned
Use with --separator to align the output columns.
--noheadings
Suppress the headings line that is normally the first line of output. Useful if grepping the output.
--nosuffix
Suppress the suffix on output sizes. Use with --units (except h and H) if processing the output.
-o, --options
Comma-separated ordered list of columns. Precede the list with '+' to append to the default selection of columns. Column names are: vg_fmt, vg_uuid, vg_name, vg_attr, vg_size, vg_free, vg_sysid, vg_extent_size, vg_extent_count, vg_free_count, max_lv, max_pv, pv_count, lv_count, snap_count, vg_seqno, vg_tags. Any "vg_" prefixes are optional. Columns mentioned in either pvs (8) or lvs (8) can also be chosen, but columns cannot be taken from both at the same time. Use -o help to view the full list of fields available.
The vg_attr bits are:
1
Permissions: (w)riteable, (r)ead-only
2
Resi(z)eable
3
E(x)ported
4
(p)artial
5
Allocation policy: (c)ontiguous, c(l)ing, (n)ormal, (a)nywhere, (i)nherited
6
(c)lustered
-O, --sort
Comma-separated ordered list of columns to sort by. Replaces the default selection. Precede any column with - for a reverse sort on that column.
--separator Separator
String to use to separate each column. Useful if grepping the output.
--unbuffered
Produce output immediately without sorting or aligning the columns properly.
--units hsbkmgtHKMGT
All sizes are output in these units: (h)uman-readable, (s)ectors, (b)ytes, (k)ilobytes, (m)egabytes, (g)igabytes, (t)erabytes. Capitalise to use multiples of 1000 (S.I.) instead of 1024. Can also specify custom (u)nits e.g. --units 3M
