The values are:
* logical volume name
* volume group name
* logical volume access
* logical volume status
* internal logical volume number
* open count of logical volume
* logical volume size in sectors
* current logical extents associated to logical volume
* allocated logical extents of logical volume
* allocation policy of logical volume
* read ahead sectors of logical volume
* major device number of logical volume
* minor device number of logical volume

"lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol2" shows attributes of that logical volume.

"lvdisplay /dev/vg00/snapshot" shows the attributes of this snapshot
logical volume and also which original logical volume it is associated
