pvs [--aligned] [-d/--debug] [-h/-?/--help] [--ignorelockingfailure] [--noheadings] [--nosuffix] [-o/--options [+]Field[,Field]] [-O/--sort [+/-]Key1[,[+/-]Key2[,...]]] [--separator Separator] [--unbuffered] [--units hsbkmgtHKMGT] [-v/--verbose] [--version] [PhysicalVolume [PhysicalVolume...]]  


pvs produces formatted output about physical volumes.  


See lvm for common options.
Use with --separator to align the output columns.
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.
-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.
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
