DESCRIPTION
       pvs produces formatted output about physical volumes.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

       --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.  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.

       --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 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

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