       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.

   OPTIONS
       -c, --colon
	      Generate colon seperated output for easier parsing in scripts or programs.

	      The values are:

	      * physical volume device name
	      * volume group name
	      * physical volume size in kilobytes
	      * internal physical volume number
	      * 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

       -d, --debug
	      Enables additional debugging output (if compiled with DEBUG).

       -h, --help

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

       -v, --verbose

       2  error checking consistency of physical volume
       3  error reading physical extent information from physical volume

       95 driver/module not in kernel
       96 invalid I/O protocol version
       97 error locking logical volume manager
       98 invalid lvmtab (run vgscan(8))
