LVSCAN(8)LVSCAN(8)NAMElvscan - scan (all disks) for Logical Volumes
SYNOPSISlvscan [-a|--all] [-b|--blockdevice] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help]
[--ignorelockingfailure] [-P|--partial] [-v|--verbose]
DESCRIPTIONlvscan 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.
This option is now ignored. Instead, use lvs(8) or lvdisplay(8)
to obtain the device number.
