DESCRIPTION
       vgs produces formatted output about volume groups.

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:   vg_fmt,  vg_uuid,  vg_name,  vg_attr,  vg_size,  vg_free,
              vg_sysid,   vg_extent_size,   vg_extent_count,    vg_free_count,
              max_lv,   max_pv,   pv_count,  lv_count,  snap_count,  vg_seqno,
              vg_tags, vg_mda_count, vg_mda_free, and vg_mda_size.  Any  "vg_"
              prefixes  are  optional.  Columns mentioned in either pvs (8) or
              lvs (8) can also be chosen, but columns  cannot  be  taken  from
              both  at  the  same  time.  Use -o help to view the full list of
              fields available.

              The vg_attr bits are:

              1  Permissions: (w)riteable, (r)ead-only

              2  Resi(z)eable

              3  E(x)ported

              4  (p)artial

              5  Allocation   policy:   (c)ontiguous,    c(l)ing,    (n)ormal,
                 (a)nywhere, (i)nherited

              6  (c)lustered

       -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.
