       [--noheadings]	   [--nosuffix]      [-o|--options	[+]Field[,Field]]      [-O|--sort

DESCRIPTION
       pvs produces formatted output about physical volumes.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

       --aligned
	      Use with --separator to align the output columns.

       --nameprefixes
	      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  vari-
	      ables (for example, in udev (7) rules).

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

       --nosuffix
	      Suppress the suffix on output sizes.  Use with --units (except h and H) if process-
	      ing the output.

       -o, --options
	      Comma-separated  ordered	list  of columns.  Precede the list with '+' to append to
	      the default selection of columns.  Column  names	are:  pv_fmt,  pv_uuid,  pv_size,
	      dev_size,  pv_free,  pv_used,  pv_name,  pv_attr,  pv_pe_count,  pv_pe_alloc_count,
	      pv_tags,	pvseg_start,  pvseg_size,  pe_start,   pv_mda_count,   pv_mda_free,   and
	      pv_mda_size.   With  --segments,	any "pvseg_" prefixes are optional; otherwise any
	      "pv_" prefixes are optional.  Columns mentioned in vgs (8) can also be chosen.  The
	      pv_attr  bits are: (a)llocatable and e(x)ported.	Use -o help to view the full list
	      of fields available.

       --segments
	      Produces one line of output for each contiguous allocation of space on each  Physi-
	      cal  Volume,  showing  the  start (pvseg_start) and length (pvseg_size) in units of
	      physical extents.

       -O, --sort
	      Comma-separated ordered list of columns to sort by.  Replaces  the  default  selec-
	      tion. 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 output.

       --unbuffered
	      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

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