       pvdata - shows debugging information about a physical volume

       pvdata  [-a|--all]  [-d|--debug]  [-h|--help]  [-E|--physicalextent]  [-L|--logicalvolume]
       [-P[P]|--physicalvolume	   [--physicalvolume]]	   [-U|--uuidlist]     [-V|--volumegroup]
       [-v[v]|--verbose [--verbose]] PhysicalVolumePath [PhysicalVolumePath...]

       pvdata allows you to display the volume group descriptor array (VGDA) of PhysicalVolume in
       part or whole for debugging purposes.

       -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.

	      Display the version and exit successfully.

       pvdata returns an exit code of 0 for success and > 0 for error:

       1  no physical volume name on command line

       95 driver/module not in kernel
       96 invalid O/O protocol version
       97 error locking logical volume manager
       99 invalid command line
