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(8) for common options.

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

       -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 sectors
              · 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.
