       lvs produces formatted output about logical 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  instead  of
              replacing  it.   Column  names  are:  lv_uuid, lv_name, lv_attr,
              lv_major, lv_minor, lv_kernel_major,  lv_kernel_minor,  lv_size,
              seg_count, origin, snap_percent, copy_percent, move_pv, lv_tags,
              segtype, stripes, stripesize,  chunksize,  seg_start,  seg_size,
              seg_tags, devices.

              With --segments, any "seg_" prefixes are optional; otherwise any
              "lv_" prefixes are optional.  Columns mentioned in vgs  (8)  can
              also be chosen.

              The lv_attr bits are:

              1  Volume  type:  (m)irrored,  (o)rigin,  (p)vmove,  (s)napshot,
                 invalid (S)napshot, (v)irtual

              2  Permissions: (w)riteable, (r)ead-only

              3  Allocation  policy:   (c)ontiguous,   (n)ormal,   (a)nywhere,
                 (i)nherited  This  is  capitalised if the volume is currently
                 locked against allocation changes, for example during  pvmove

              4  fixed (m)inor

              5  State:  (a)ctive,  (s)uspended,  (I)nvalid  snapshot, invalid
                 (S)uspended snapshot, mapped (d)evice present without tables,
                 mapped device present with (i)nactive table

              6  device (o)pen

              Use default columns that emphasize segment information.

       -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
              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
