       lvdisplay - display attributes of a logical volume

       lvdisplay [-c|--colon] [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help]
       [--ignorelockingfailure] [--maps] [-P|--partial] [-v|--verbose]
       LogicalVolumePath [LogicalVolumePath...]

       lvdisplay allows you to see the attributes of a logical volume like
       size, read/write status, snapshot information etc.

       lvs (8) is an alternative that provides the same information in the
       style of ps (1).  lvs is recommended over lvdisplay.

       See lvm for common options.

       -c, --colon
              Generate colon separated output for easier parsing in scripts or
              programs.  N.B. lvs (8) provides considerably more control over
              the output.

              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

       -m, --maps
              Display the mapping of logical extents to physical volumes and
              physical extents.

       "lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol2" shows attributes of that logical volume.
       If snapshot logical volumes have been created for this original logical
       volume, this command shows a list of all snapshot logical volumes and
       their status (active or inactive) as well.

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