VGDISPLAY(8)                System Manager's Manual               VGDISPLAY(8)

       vgdisplay - display attributes of volume groups

       vgdisplay [-A|--activevolumegroups] [-c|--colon] [-d|--debug]
       [-h|--help] [--ignorelockingfailure] [-P|--partial] [-s|--short]
       [-v[v]|--verbose [--verbose]] [--version] [VolumeGroupName...]

       vgdisplay allows you to see the attributes of VolumeGroupName (or all
       volume groups if none is given) with it's physical and logical volumes
       and their sizes etc.

       vgs (8) is an alternative that provides the same information in the
       style of ps (1).

       See lvm for common options.

       -A, --activevolumegroups
              Only select the active volume groups.

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

              The values are:

              1  volume group name
              2  volume group access
              3  volume group status
              4  internal volume group number
              5  maximum number of logical volumes
              6  current number of logical volumes
              7  open count of all logical volumes in this volume group
              8  maximum logical volume size
              9  maximum number of physical volumes
              10 current number of physical volumes
              11 actual number of physical volumes
              12 size of volume group in kilobytes
              13 physical extent size
              14 total number of physical extents for this volume group
              15 allocated number of physical extents for this volume group
              16 free number of physical extents for this volume group
              17 uuid of volume group

       -s, --short
              Give a short listing showing the existence of volume groups.

       -v, --verbose
              Display verbose information containing long listings of physical
              and logical volumes.  If given twice, also display verbose
              runtime information of vgdisplay's activities.

              Display version and exit successfully.
