NAME

       lvdisplay - display attributes of a logical volume


SYNOPSIS

       lvdisplay  [-c/--colon]  [-d/--debug]  [-h/-?/--help] [--ignorelocking-
       failure] [--maps] [-P/--partial] [-v/--verbose] LogicalVolumePath [Log-
       icalVolumePath...]


DESCRIPTION

       lvdisplay  allows  you  to  see the attributes of a logical volume like
       size, read/write status, snapshot information etc.

       lvs (8) is an alternative that provides the  same  information  in  the
       style of ps (1).


OPTIONS

       See lvm for common options.

       -c, --colon
              Generate colon separated output for easier parsing in scripts or
              programs.  N.B. lvs (8) provides considerably more control  over
              the output.

              The values are:

              * logical volume name
              * volume group name
              * logical volume access
              * logical volume status
              * internal logical volume number
              * open count of logical volume
              * logical volume size in kilobytes
              * current logical extents associated to logical volume
              * allocated logical extents of logical volume
              * allocation policy of logical volume
              * read ahead sectors of logical volume
              * major device number of logical volume
              * minor device number of logical volume


       -m, --maps
              Display  the  mapping of logical extents to physical volumes and
              physical extents.


Examples

       "lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol2" shows attributes of that logical  volume
       and  its mapping of logical to physical extents. In case snapshot logi-
       cal volumes have been created for this original  logical  volume,  this
       command  shows  a list of all snapshot logical volumes and their status
       (active or inactive) as well.

       "lvdisplay /dev/vg00/snapshot" shows the attributes  of  this  snapshot
       logical  volume and also which original logical volume it is associated
       with.
