NAME
       pvdisplay - display attributes of a physical volume

SYNOPSIS
       pvdisplay  [-c|--colon]	[-d|--debug]  [-h|-?|--help]  [--ignorelockingfailure]	[--maps]  [--nosuffix] [-s|--short] [--units hsbkmgtHKMGT]
       [-v[v]|--verbose [--verbose]] [--version] [PhysicalVolumePath [PhysicalVolumePath...]]

       pvdisplay  --columns  |	-C  [--aligned]  [-a|--all]  [-d|--debug]  [-h|-?|--help]  [--ignorelockingfailure]  [--noheadings]   [--nosuffix]
       [-o|--options  [+]Field[,Field]]  [-O|--sort  [+|-]Key1[,[+|-]Key2[,...]]]   [--separator  Separator]  [--unbuffered] [--units hHbBsSkKmMg-
       GtTpPeE] [-v[v]|--verbose [--verbose]] [--version] [PhysicalVolumePath [PhysicalVolumePath...]]

DESCRIPTION
       pvdisplay allows you to see the attributes of one or more physical volumes like size, physical extent size, space used for the volume group
       descriptor area and so on.

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

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options and pvs for options given with --columns.

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

	      The values are:

	      * physical volume device name
	      * volume group name
	      * physical volume size in kilobytes
	      * internal physical volume number (obsolete)
	      * physical volume status
	      * physical volume (not) allocatable
	      * current number of logical volumes on this physical volume
	      * physical extent size in kilobytes
	      * total number of physical extents
	      * free number of physical extents
	      * allocated number of physical extents

       -s, --short
	      Only display the size of the given physical volumes.

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

       --columns | -C
	      Display output in columns, the equivalent of pvs (8).  See pvs (8) for a description of other options with this form of pvdisplay.
