NAME

       lvdisplay - display attributes of a logical volume

SYNOPSIS

       lvdisplay        [-c/--colon]        [-d/--debug]        [-h/-?/--help]
       [--ignorelockingfailure]   [--maps]    [-P/--partial]    [-v/--verbose]
       LogicalVolumePath [LogicalVolumePath...]

DESCRIPTION

       lvdisplay  allows  you  to  see the attributes of a logical volume like
       size, read/write status, snapshot information etc.

       lvs (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. lvs (8) provides considerably more control  over
              the output.

              The values are:

              * logical volume name
              * volume group name
              * logical volume access
              * logical volume status
              * internal logical volume number
              * open count of logical volume
              * logical volume size in kilobytes
              * current logical extents associated to logical volume
              * allocated logical extents of logical volume
              * allocation policy of logical volume
              * read ahead sectors of logical volume
              * major device number of logical volume
              * minor device number of logical volume

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

Examples

       "lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol2" shows attributes of that logical volume.
       If snapshot logical volumes have been created for this original logical
       volume, this command shows a list of all snapshot logical  volumes  and
       their status (active or inactive) as well.

       "lvdisplay  /dev/vg00/snapshot"  shows  the attributes of this snapshot
       logical volume and also which original logical volume it is  associated
       with.
