OPTIONS

See lvm for common options.
--aligned
Use with --separator to align the output columns.
--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 processing the output.
-o, --options
Comma-separated ordered list of columns. Precede the list with '+' to append to the default selection of columns. Column names are: pv_fmt, pv_uuid, pv_size, dev_size, pv_free, pv_used, pv_name, pv_attr, pv_pe_count, pv_pe_alloc_count, pv_tags. The "pv_" prefix is optional. Columns mentioned in vgs (8) can also be chosen. The pv_attr bits are: (a)llocatable and e(x)ported.
-O, --sort
Comma-separated ordered list of columns to sort by. Replaces the default selection. Precede any column with - for a reverse sort on that column.
--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 hsbkmgtHKMGT
All sizes are output in these units: (h)uman-readable, (s)ectors, (b)ytes, (k)ilobytes, (m)egabytes, (g)igabytes, (t)erabytes. Capitalise to use multiples of 1000 (S.I.) instead of 1024. Can also specify custom (u)nits e.g. --units 3M
