See lvm(8) for common options.
--all List all volume groups. Equivalent to not specifying any
Use with --separator to align the output columns.
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).
Make any subsequent -o, --options, -O, --sort or -S, --select
to apply for ReportName where ReportName is either 'vg' for
command's main report or 'log' for log report. If
--configreport option is not used to identify a report, then
command's main report is assumed. The log report is available
only if enabled by log/report_command_log lvm.conf(5) setting
or if --logonly option is used.
Suppress the vgs report itself and display only log report on
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 variables (for
example, in udev(7) rules).
Suppress the headings line that is normally the first line of
output. Useful if grepping the output.
Suppress the suffix on output sizes. Use with --units (except
h and H) if processing the output.
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
Use -o vg_all to select all volume group columns.
Use -o help to view the full list of columns available.
Column names include: vg_fmt, vg_uuid, vg_name, vg_attr,
vg_size, vg_free, vg_sysid, vg_extent_size, vg_extent_count,
vg_free_count, vg_profile, max_lv, max_pv, pv_count, lv_count,
snap_count, vg_seqno, vg_tags, vg_mda_count, vg_mda_free, and
Any "vg_" prefixes are optional. Columns mentioned in either
pvs(8) or lvs(8) can also be chosen, but columns cannot be
taken from both at the same time.
The vg_attr bits are:
1 Permissions: (w)riteable, (r)ead-only
4 (p)artial: one or more physical volumes belonging to the
volume group are missing from the system
5 Allocation policy: (c)ontiguous, c(l)ing, (n)ormal,
6 (c)lustered, (s)hared
Comma-separated ordered list of columns to sort by. Replaces
the default selection. Precede any column with '-' for a
reverse sort on that column.
--rows Output columns as rows.
-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 Selection 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 supported 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 vgs -S help command.
String to use to separate each column. Useful if grepping the
Produce output immediately without sorting or aligning the
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. Capitalise to use
multiples of 1000 (S.I.) instead of 1024. Can also specify
custom units e.g. --units 3M
When used with --nameprefixes, output values in the
field=value pairs are not quoted.
