DESCRIPTION

       vgs produces formatted output about volume groups.

OPTIONS

       See lvm for common options.

       --all  List all volume groups.  Equivalent to not specifying any volume groups.

       --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.

              Use -o vg_all to select all volume group columns.

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

              Column  names  include:  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,   vg_mda_count,   vg_mda_free,   and
              vg_mda_size.

              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:

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

              2  Resi(z)eable

              3  E(x)ported

              4  (p)artial: one or more physical  volumes  belonging  to  the  volume  group  are
                 missing from the system

              5  Allocation policy: (c)ontiguous, c(l)ing, (n)ormal, (a)nywhere, (i)nherited

              6  (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.

       --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.
