DESCRIPTION
       pvs produces formatted output about physical volumes.

OPTIONS
       See lvm(8) for common options.

       --all  Include information in the output about devices that have not been initialized with
              pvcreate(8).

       --aligned
              Use with --separator to align the output columns.

       --binary
              Use binary values "0" or "1" instead of descriptive literal values for columns that
              have exactly two valid values to report (not counting  the  "unknown"  value  which
              denotes that the value could not be determined).

       --nameprefixes
              Add  an "LVM2_" prefix plus the field name to the output.  Useful with --noheadings
              to produce a list of field=value pairs that can be used to  set  environment  vari‐
              ables (for example, in udev(7) rules).

       --noheadings
              Suppress  the  headings  line that is normally the first line of output.  Useful if
              grepping the output.

       --nosuffix
              Suppress the suffix on output sizes.  Use with --units (except h and H) if process‐
              ing the output.

       -o, --options
              Comma-separated ordered list of columns.

              Precede  the  list with '+' to append to the current list of columns, '-' to remove
              from the current list of columns or '#' to compact given columns. The -o option can
              be repeated, providing several lists. These lists are evaluated from left to right.

              Use -o pv_all to select all physical volume columns, and -o pvseg_all to select all
              Physical Volume segment columns.

              Use -o help to view the full list of columns available.

              Column names include: pv_fmt, pv_uuid, dev_size, pv_name, pv_mda_free, pv_mda_size,
              pv_ba_start, pv_ba_size, pe_start, pv_size, pv_free, pv_used, pv_attr, pv_pe_count,
              pv_pe_alloc_count,  pv_tags,  pv_mda_count,  pv_mda_used_count,  pvseg_start,   and
              pvseg_size

              With  --segments,  any "pvseg_" prefixes are optional; otherwise any "pv_" prefixes
              are optional.  Columns mentioned in vgs(8) can also be  chosen.  The  pv_attr  bits
              are: (a)llocatable, e(x)ported and (m)issing.

       --segments
              Produces  one line of output for each contiguous allocation of space on each Physi‐
              cal Volume, showing the start (pvseg_start) and length  (pvseg_size)  in  units  of
              physical extents.

       -S, --select Selection
              Display  only  rows  that match Selection criteria. All rows are displayed with the
              additional "selected" column (-o selected) showing 1 if the row matches the  Selec‐
              tion and 0 otherwise. The Selection criteria are defined by specifying column names
              and their valid values (that can include reserved values) while making use of  sup‐
              ported  comparison  operators.  See  lvm(8)  and  -S, --select description for more
              detailed information about constructing the Selection criteria. As a quick help and
              to  see  full list of column names that can be used in Selection including the list
              of reserved values and the set of supported selection operators, check  the  output
              of pvs -S help command.

       -O, --sort
              Comma-separated  ordered  list  of columns to sort by.  Replaces the default selec‐
              tion. Precede any column with '-' for a reverse sort on that column.

       --rows Output columns as rows.

       --separator Separator
              String to use to separate each column.  Useful if grepping the output.

       --unbuffered
              Produce output immediately without sorting or aligning the columns properly.

       --units hHbBsSkKmMgGtTpPeE
              All  sizes  are  output  in  these  units:  (h)uman-readable,  (b)ytes,  (s)ectors,
              (k)ilobytes, (m)egabytes, (g)igabytes, (t)erabytes, (p)etabytes, (e)xabytes.  Capi‐
              talise to use multiples of 1000 (S.I.) instead of 1024.  Can  also  specify  custom
              units e.g. --units 3M

       --unquoted
              When  used  with  --nameprefixes,  output  values  in the field=value pairs are not
              quoted.
