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.  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.  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.   The  vg_attr  bits  are:
              (w)riteable, (r)eadonly, resi(z)eable, e(x)ported, (p)artial and
              (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.

       --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
