       pvdisplay - display attributes of a physical volume

       pvdisplay [-c|--colon] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-s|--short] [-v[v]|--verbose [--verbose]]
       PhysicalVolumePath [PhysicalVolumePath...]

       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.

       -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
	      Print a usage message on standard output and exit successfully.

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

       -v, --verbose
	      Display the mapping of physical extents to logical volumes and logical extents.

       -vv, --verbose --verbose
	      Like -v with verbose runtime information about pvdisplay's activities.

       pvdisplay returns an code state of 0 for success and > 0 for error:

       1  no physical volume name on command line
       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))
       99 invalid command line
