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(8)
       is recommended over lvdisplay.

OPTIONS

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

       -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

Examples

       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 -v vg00/lvol2

       Shows  the  attributes  of  this  snapshot  logical volume and also which original logical
       volume it is associated with:

       lvdisplay vg00/snapshot
