vgs - report information about volume groups  


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


vgs produces formatted output about volume groups.  


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: vg_fmt, vg_uuid, vg_name, vg_attr, vg_size, vg_free, vg_sysid, vg_extent_size, vg_extent_count, vg_free_count, max_lv, max_pv, pv_count, lv_count, snap_count, vg_seqno, vg_tags. 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: (w)riteable, (r)eadonly, resi(z)eable, e(x)ported, (p)artial and (c)lustered.
-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
