       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).	lvs(8) is recommended over lvdisplay.

       See lvm(8) for common options and lvs for options given with --columns.

       --all  Include information in the output about internal Logical Volumes
	      that are components of normally-accessible Logical Volumes, such
	      as mirrors, but which are not independently accessible (e.g. not
	      mountable).  For example, after creating a mirror using lvcreate
	      -m1  --mirrorlog	disk,  this  option will reveal three internal
	      Logical Volumes, with suffixes mimage_0, mimage_1, and mlog.

       -C, --columns
	      Display output in columns, the equivalent	 of  lvs(8).   Options
	      listed are the same as options given in lvs(8).

       -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 sectors
	      * 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.	 To map physical extents  to  logical  extents
	      use: pvs --segments -o+lv_name,seg_start_pe,segtype

       Shows  attributes  of  that logical volume. If snapshot logical 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 -v /dev/vg00/lvol2

       Shows the attributes of this snapshot logical  volume  and  also	 which
       original logical volume it is associated with:

       lvdisplay /dev/vg00/snapshot
