       lvs - report information about logical volumes

       [--nameprefixes] [--noheadings] [--nosuffix] [-o|--options

       lvs produces formatted output about logical volumes.

       See lvm for common options.

              Use with --separator to align the output columns.

              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).

              Suppress the headings line that is normally the first line of
              output.  Useful if grepping the output.

              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 instead of
              replacing it.  Column names are: lv_uuid, lv_name, lv_attr,
              lv_major, lv_minor, lv_kernel_major, lv_kernel_minor, lv_size,
              seg_count, origin, snap_percent, copy_percent, move_pv, lv_tags,
              segtype, stripes, stripesize, chunksize, seg_start, seg_size,
              seg_tags, devices, regionsize, mirror_log, modules.

              With --segments, any "seg_" prefixes are optional; otherwise any
              "lv_" prefixes are optional.  Columns mentioned in vgs (8) can
              also be chosen.  Use -o help to view the full list of fields

              The lv_attr bits are:

              1  Volume type: (m)irrored, (M)irrored without initial sync,
                 (o)rigin, (p)vmove, (s)napshot, invalid (S)napshot,
                 (v)irtual, mirror (i)mage, mirror (I)mage out-of-sync, under

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

              3  Allocation policy: (c)ontiguous, c(l)ing, (n)ormal,
                 (a)nywhere, (i)nherited This is capitalised if the volume is
                 currently locked against allocation changes, for example
                 during pvmove (8).

              4  fixed (m)inor

              5  State: (a)ctive, (s)uspended, (I)nvalid snapshot, invalid
                 (S)uspended snapshot, mapped (d)evice present without tables,
                 mapped device present with (i)nactive table

              6  device (o)pen

              Use default columns that emphasize segment information.

       -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

              Produce output immediately without sorting or aligning the
              columns 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

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