       vgdisplay - display attributes of volume groups

       vgdisplay  [-A|--activevolumegroups]  [-c|--colon]  [-d|--debug]  [-D|--disk]  [-h|--help]
       [-s|--short] [-v[v]|--verbose [--verbose]] [--version] [VolumeGroupName...]

       vgdisplay allows you to see the attributes of VolumeGroupName (or  all  volume  groups  if
       none is given) with it's physical and logical volumes and their sizes etc.

       -A, --activevolumegroups
	      Only select the active volume groups.

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

	      The values are:

	      1  volume group name
	      2  volume group access
	      3  volume group status
	      4  internal volume group number
	      5  maximum number of logical volumes
	      6  current number of logical volumes
	      7  open count of all logical volumes in this volume group
	      8  maximum logical volume size
	      9  maximum number of physical volumes
	      10 current number of physical volumes
	      11 actual number of physical volumes
	      12 size of volume group in kilobytes
	      13 physical extent size
	      14 total number of physical extents for this volume group
	      15 allocated number of physical extents for this volume group
	      16 free number of physical extents for this volume group
	      17 uuid of volume group

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

       -D, --disk
	      Show  attributes	from  the  volume group descriptor area on disk(s).  Without this
	      switch they are shown from the kernel.  Useful if the volume group isn't activated.

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

       -s, --short
	      Give a short listing showing the existence of volume groups.

       -v, --verbose
	      Display verbose information containing long listings of physical and  logical  vol-
	      umes.   If  given  twice,  also  display verbose runtime information of vgdisplay's

	      Display version and exit successfully.

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

       1  error reading VGDA
       2  volume group doesn't exist
       3  not all physical volumes of volume group online
       4  volume group not found
       5  no volume groups found at all
       6  error reading VGDA from lvmtab

       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

       lvm(8), pvcreate(8), vgcreate(8), lvcreate(8)
