NAME
       lvdisplay - display attributes of a logical volume

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

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

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

OPTIONS
       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.

Examples
       "lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol2" shows attributes of that logical volume.	If snapshot logi-
       cal 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 with.
