SYNOPSIS
pvdata [-a|--all] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-E|--physicalextent] [-L|--logicalvolume] [-P[P]|--physicalvolume [--physicalvolume]] [-U|--uuidlist] [-V|--volumegroup] [-v[v]|--verbose [--verbose]] PhysicalVolumePath [Phys- icalVolumePath...]
DESCRIPTION
pvdata allows you to display the volume group descriptor array (VGDA) of PhysicalVolume in part or whole for debugging purposes. OPTIONS -a, --all Display all structures (PE, LV, PV, UUID, VG). The same as giving the -E -L -P -U -V options. -d, --debug Enables additional debugging output (if compiled with DEBUG). -E, --physicalextent Display physical extent structures. -h, --help Print a usage message on standard output and exit successfully. -L, --logicalvolume Display logical volume structures. -P, --physicalvolume Display physical volume structure in pvdisplay format. If given a second time, also display the on- disk LVM metadata locations. -U, --uuidlist Display the volume group UUID list. -v, --verbose Display verbose structure information. If given a second time, verbose runtime information about pvdata's activities are also shown. -V, --volumegroup Display volume group structure. --version Display the version and exit successfully.
