NAME
       vgs - report information about volume groups

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

DESCRIPTION
       vgs produces formatted output about volume groups.

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: 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, vg_mda_count, vg_mda_free, and vg_mda_size.  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.

       --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.
