DESCRIPTION

       lvs produces formatted output about logical volumes.

OPTIONS

       See lvm for common options.

       --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).   The names of such Logical
              Volumes are enclosed within square brackets in  the  output.   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.

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

       --nameprefixes
              Add an "LVM2_" prefix plus the field name to the output.  Useful with  --noheadings
              to  produce  a  list  of  field=value  pairs  that  can  be used to set environment
              variables (for example, in udev (7) rules).

       --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.

              Use  -o  lv_all  to select all logical volume columns, and -o seg_all to select all
              logical volume segment columns.

              Use -o help to view the full list of columns available.

              Column names include: lv_uuid, lv_name, lv_attr, lv_major, lv_minor, lv_read_ahead,
              lv_kernel_major, lv_kernel_minor, lv_kernel_read_ahead, lv_size, seg_count, origin,
              origin_size, snap_percent, copy_percent, move_pv, convert_lv, lv_tags,  mirror_log,
              modules,   segtype,   stripes,   stripesize,   regionsize,   chunksize,  seg_start,
              seg_start_pe, seg_size, seg_tags, seg_pe_ranges, 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,  (M)irrored  without initial sync, (o)rigin, (O)rigin
                 with merging snapshot,  (s)napshot,  merging  (S)napshot,  (p)vmove,  (v)irtual,
                 mirror (i)mage, mirror (I)mage out-of-sync, under (c)onversion

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

              3  Allocation policy: (c)ontiguous, c(l)ing, (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.

       --rows Output columns as rows.

       --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 hHbBsSkKmMgGtTpPeE
              All  sizes  are  output  in  these  units:  (h)uman-readable,  (b)ytes,  (s)ectors,
              (k)ilobytes,   (m)egabytes,   (g)igabytes,  (t)erabytes,  (p)etabytes,  (e)xabytes.
              Capitalise to use multiples of 1000 (S.I.)  instead  of  1024.   Can  also  specify
              custom units e.g. --units 3M

       --unquoted
              When  used  with  --nameprefixes,  output  values  in the field=value pairs are not
              quoted.
