PVDISPLAY(8)                System Manager's Manual               PVDISPLAY(8)



NAME
       pvdisplay - display attributes of a physical volume

SYNOPSIS
       pvdisplay   [-c/--colon]   [-d/--debug]   [-h/-?/--help]   [-s/--short]
       [-v[v]/--verbose    [--verbose]]    PhysicalVolumePath    [PhysicalVol-
       umePath...]

DESCRIPTION
       pvdisplay allows you to see the attributes of one or more physical vol-
       umes like size, physical extent size, space used for the  volume  group
       descriptor area and so on.

       pvs  (8)  is  an  alternative that provides the same information in the
       style of ps (1).

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

       -c, --colon
              Generate colon separated output for easier parsing in scripts or
              programs.   N.B. pvs (8) provides considerably more control over
              the output.

              The values are:

              * physical volume device name
              * volume group name
              * physical volume size in kilobytes
              * internal physical volume number (obsolete)
              * physical volume status
              * physical volume (not) allocatable
              * current number of logical volumes on this physical volume
              * physical extent size in kilobytes
              * total number of physical extents
              * free number of physical extents
              * allocated number of physical extents


       -s, --short
              Only display the size of the given physical volumes.

       -m, --maps
              Display the mapping of physical extents to logical  volumes  and
              logical extents.
