OPTIONS         top

       See lvm(8) for common options.

              Disable udev synchronisation. The process will not wait for
              notification from udev.  It will continue irrespective of any
              possible udev processing in the background.  You should only
              use this if udev is not running or has rules that ignore the
              devices LVM2 creates.

EXAMPLE         top

       To rename lvold in volume group vg02 to lvnew:

       lvrename /dev/vg02/lvold vg02/lvnew

       An alternate syntax to rename this logical volume is:

       lvrename vg02 lvold lvnew
