DESCRIPTION

       lvs produces formatted output about logical volumes.

OPTIONS

       See lvm for common options.

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

       --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  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
                 (8).

              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

       --segments
              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
              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
