       pvs produces formatted output about physical 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.  Column names
              are:  pv_fmt,  pv_uuid,  pv_size,  dev_size,  pv_free,  pv_used,
              pv_name, pv_attr, pv_pe_count, pv_pe_alloc_count, pv_tags.   The
              "pv_" prefix is optional.  Columns mentioned in vgs (8) can also
              be chosen. The pv_attr bits are: (a)llocatable and e(x)ported.

       -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
