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).   lvs
       is recommended over lvdisplay.

OPTIONS

       See lvm for common options and lvs for options given with --columns.

       --all  Include  information  in  the  output  about  internal  Logical  Volumes  that  are
              components of normally-accessible Logical Volumes, such as mirrors, but  which  are
              not  independently  accessible (e.g. not mountable).  For example, after creating a
              mirror using 'lvcreate  -m1  --mirrorlog  disk',  this  option  will  reveal  three
              internal Logical Volumes, with suffixes mimage_0, mimage_1, and mlog.

       -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 sectors
              * 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.
              To    map   physical   extents   to   logical   extents   use      pvs   --segments
              -o+lv_name,seg_start_pe,segtype.

       --columns | -C
              Display output in columns, the equivalent of lvs.  Options listed are the  same  as
              options given in lvs (8).

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.
