DESCRIPTION
       lvdisplay  allows you to see the attributes of a logical volume like size, read/write sta-
       tus, snapshot information etc.

       lvs (8) is an alternative that provides the same information in the style of ps (1).   lvs
       is recommended over lvdisplay.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options and lvs for options given with --columns.

       --all  Include  information  in	the output about internal Logical Volumes that are compo-
	      nents of normally-accessible Logical Volumes, such as mirrors, but  which  are  not
	      independently  accessible (e.g. not mountable).  For example, after creating a mir-
	      ror using 'lvcreate -m1 --mirrorlog disk', this option will reveal  three  internal
	      Logical Volumes, with suffixes mimage_0, mimage_1, and mlog.

       -c, --colon
	      Generate	colon  separated  output for easier parsing in scripts or programs.  N.B.
	      lvs (8) provides considerably more control over the output.

	      The values are:

	      * logical volume name
	      * volume group name
	      * logical volume access
	      * logical volume status
	      * internal logical volume number
	      * open count of logical volume
	      * logical volume size in sectors
	      * current logical extents associated to logical volume
	      * allocated logical extents of logical volume
	      * allocation policy of logical volume
	      * read ahead sectors of logical volume
	      * major device number of logical volume
	      * minor device number of logical volume

       -m, --maps
	      Display the mapping of logical extents to physical volumes  and  physical  extents.
	      To    map   physical   extents   to   logical   extents	use	 pvs   --segments
	      -o+lv_name,seg_start_pe,segtype.

       --columns | -C
	      Display output in columns, the equivalent of lvs.  Options listed are the  same  as
	      options given in lvs (8).

Examples
       "lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol2" shows attributes of that logical volume.	If snapshot logi-
       cal volumes have been created for this original logical volume, this command shows a  list
       of all snapshot logical volumes and their status (active or inactive) as well.

       "lvdisplay  /dev/vg00/snapshot"	shows  the attributes of this snapshot logical volume and
       also which original logical volume it is associated with.
