       pvck - check physical volume metadata

       pvck  [-d|--debug]  [-h|--help]	[-v|--verbose]	[--labelsector sector]
       PhysicalVolume [PhysicalVolume...]

       pvck checks physical volume LVM metadata for consistency.

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       --labelsector sector
	      By default, 4 sectors of PhysicalVolume are scanned for  an  LVM
	      label, starting at sector 0.  This parameter allows you to spec‐
	      ify a different starting sector for the scan and is  useful  for
	      recovery	situations.   For example, suppose the partition table
	      is corrupted or lost on /dev/sda, but you suspect there  was  an
	      LVM  partition  at approximately 100 MiB.	 This area of the disk
	      may be scanned by using the --labelsector parameter with a value
	      of 204800 (100 * 1024 * 1024 / 512 = 204800):

	      pvck --labelsector 204800 /dev/sda

	      Note  that  a  script can be used with --labelsector to automate
	      the process of finding LVM labels.
