DESCRIPTION         top

       lvmdiskscan scans all SCSI, (E)IDE disks, multiple devices and a
       bunch of other block devices in the system looking for LVM physical
       volumes.  The size reported is the real device size.  Define a filter
       in lvm.conf(5) to restrict the scan to avoid a CD ROM, for example.
