       pvs produces formatted output about physical volumes.

       See lvm for common options.

              Use with --separator to align the output columns.

              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).

              Suppress  the  headings  line that is normally the first line of
              output.  Useful if grepping the output.

              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.  Column names
              are:  pv_fmt,  pv_uuid,  pv_size,  dev_size,  pv_free,  pv_used,
              pv_name,  pv_attr,  pv_pe_count,   pv_pe_alloc_count,   pv_tags,
              pvseg_start,  pvseg_size,  pe_start,  pv_mda_count, pv_mda_free,
              and pv_mda_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 and e(x)ported.  Use -o help to view the full list
              of fields available.

              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

              Produce  output immediately without sorting or aligning the col-
              umns properly.

       --units hsbkmgtHKMGT
              All  sizes  are  output  in   these   units:   (h)uman-readable,
              (s)ectors,   (b)ytes,   (k)ilobytes,  (m)egabytes,  (g)igabytes,
              (t)erabytes.  Capitalise to use multiples of 1000 (S.I.) instead
              of 1024.  Can also specify custom (u)nits e.g.  --units 3M

              When  used with --nameprefixes, output values in the field=value
              pairs are not quoted.
