DESCRIPTION

       pvdisplay  allows  you  to  see  the attributes of one or more physical volumes like size,
       physical extent size, space used for the volume group descriptor area and so on.

       pvs (8) is an alternative that provides the same information in the style of ps (1).

OPTIONS

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

       -c, --colon
              Generate colon separated output for easier parsing in scripts  or  programs.   N.B.
              pvs (8) provides considerably more control over the output.

              The values are:

              * physical volume device name
              * volume group name
              * physical volume size in kilobytes
              * internal physical volume number (obsolete)
              * physical volume status
              * physical volume (not) allocatable
              * current number of logical volumes on this physical volume
              * physical extent size in kilobytes
              * total number of physical extents
              * free number of physical extents
              * allocated number of physical extents

       -s, --short
              Only display the size of the given physical volumes.

       -m, --maps
              Display the mapping of physical extents to logical volumes and logical extents.

       --columns | -C
              Display  output  in  columns,  the  equivalent  of  pvs  (8).   See  pvs  (8) for a
              description of other options with this form of pvdisplay.
