NAME
       pvs - report information about physical volumes

SYNOPSIS
       pvs [--aligned] [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [--ignorelockingfailure]
       [--nameprefixes] [--noheadings] [--nosuffix] [-o|--options
       [+]Field[,Field]] [-O|--sort [+|-]Key1[,[+|-]Key2[,...]]] [--rows]
       [--segments] [--separator Separator] [--unbuffered] [--units
       hsbkmgtHKMGT] [--unquoted] [-v|--verbose] [--version] [PhysicalVolume
       [PhysicalVolume...]]

DESCRIPTION
       pvs produces formatted output about physical volumes.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

       --aligned
              Use with --separator to align the output columns.

       --nameprefixes
              Add an "LVM2_" prefix plus the field name to the output.  Useful
              with --noheadings to produce a list of field=value pairs that
              can be used to set environment variables (for example, in udev
              (7) rules).

       --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: 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,
              pvseg_start, pvseg_size, pe_start, pv_mda_count, pv_mda_free,
              and pv_mda_size.  With --segments, any "pvseg_" prefixes are
              optional; otherwise any "pv_" prefixes are optional.  Columns
              mentioned in vgs (8) can also be chosen. The pv_attr bits are:
              (a)llocatable and e(x)ported.  Use -o help to view the full list
              of fields available.

       --segments
              Produces one line of output for each contiguous allocation of
              space on each Physical Volume, showing the start (pvseg_start)
              and length (pvseg_size) in units of physical extents.

       -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.

       --rows Output columns as rows.

       --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

       --unquoted
              When used with --nameprefixes, output values in the field=value
              pairs are not quoted.
