       lvs - report information about logical volumes

       lvs  [--aligned]  [-d/--debug]  [-h/-?/--help] [--ignorelockingfailure]
       [--noheadings] [--nosuffix] [-o/--options [+]Field[,Field]]  [-O/--sort
       [+/-]Key1[,[+/-]Key2[,...]]]   [-P/--partial] [--segments] [--separator
       Separator] [--unbuffered] [--units hsbkmgtHKMGT] [-v/--verbose] [--ver-
       sion] [VolumeGroupName [VolumeGroupName...]]

       lvs produces formatted output about logical volumes.

       See lvm for common options.

              Use with --separator to align the output columns.

              Suppress  the  headings  line that is normally the first line of
              output.  Useful if grepping the output.

              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  instead  of
              replacing  it.   Column  names  are:  lv_uuid, lv_name, lv_attr,
              lv_major, lv_minor, lv_kernel_major,  lv_kernel_minor,  lv_size,
              seg_count, origin, snap_percent, copy_percent, move_pv, lv_tags,
              segtype, stripes, stripesize,  chunksize,  seg_start,  seg_size,
              seg_tags, devices.

              With --segments, any "seg_" prefixes are optional; otherwise any
              "lv_" prefixes are optional.  Columns mentioned in vgs  (8)  can
              also be chosen.

              The lv_attr bits are:

              1  Volume  type:  (m)irrored,  (o)rigin,  (p)vmove,  (s)napshot,
                 invalid (S)napshot, (v)irtual

              2  Permissions: (w)riteable, (r)ead-only

              3  Allocation  policy:   (c)ontiguous,   (n)ormal,   (a)nywhere,
                 (i)nherited  This  is  capitalised if the volume is currently
                 locked against allocation changes, for example during  pvmove

              4  fixed (m)inor

              5  State:  (a)ctive,  (s)uspended,  (I)nvalid  snapshot, invalid
                 (S)uspended snapshot

              6  device (o)pen

              Use default columns that emphasize segment information.

       -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

              Produce  output immediately without sorting or aligning the col-
              umns 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
