       lvscan - scan (all disks) for Logical Volumes

       lvscan	 [-a|--all]    [-b|--blockdevice]   [-d|--debug]   [-h|--help]
       [--ignorelockingfailure] [-P|--partial] [-v|--verbose]

       lvscan scans all known volume groups or all supported LVM block devices
       in  the system for defined Logical Volumes.  The output consists of one
       line for each Logical Volume indicating whether or not it is active,  a
       snapshot	 or  origin, the size of the device and its allocation policy.
       Use lvs(8) or lvdisplay(8)  to  obtain  more-comprehensive  information
       about the Logical Volumes.

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       --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.

       -b, --blockdevice
	      This option is now ignored.  Instead, use lvs(8) or lvdisplay(8)
	      to obtain the device number.
