pvs produces formatted output about physical volumes.
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.
