pvs

report information about physical volumes

pvs [-a|--all] [--aligned] [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [--ignorelockingfailure] [--nameprefixes] [--noheadings] [--nosuffix] [-o|--options [+]Field[,Field...]] [-O|--sort [+|-]Key1[,[+|-]Key2...]] [-P|--partial] [--rows] [--segments] [--separator Separator] [--unbuffered] [--units hHbBsSkKmMgGtTpPeE] [--unquoted] [-v|--verbose] [--version] [PhysicalVolume [PhysicalVolume...]]

pvs produces formatted output about physical volumes.

See lvm(8) for common options.

--all

Include information in the output about devices that have not been initialized with pvcreate(8).

--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 pv_all to select all physical volume columns, and -o pvseg_all to select all Physical Volume segment columns.

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

Column names include: pv_fmt, pv_uuid, dev_size, pv_name, pv_mda_free, pv_mda_size, pe_start, pv_size, pv_free, pv_used, pv_attr, pv_pe_count, pv_pe_alloc_count, pv_tags, pv_mda_count, pv_mda_used_count, pvseg_start, and pvseg_size.

With --segments, any "pvseg_" prefixes are optional; otherwise any "pv_" prefixes are optional. Columns mentioned in vgs(8) can also be chosen. The pv_attr bits are: (a)llocatable, e(x)ported and (m)issing.

--segments

Produces one line of output for each contiguous allocation of space on each Physical Volume, showing the start (pvseg_start) and length (pvseg_size) in units of physical extents.

-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.
