       pvs produces formatted output about physical volumes.

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       --all  Include  information  in	the output about devices that have not
	      been initialized with pvcreate(8).

	      Use with --separator to align the output columns.

	      Add an "LVM2_" prefix plus the field name to the output.	Useful
	      with  --noheadings  to  produce a list of field=value pairs that
	      can be used  to  set  environment	 variables  (for  example,  in
	      udev(7) rules).

	      Suppress	the  headings  line that is normally the first line of
	      output.  Useful if grepping the output.

	      Suppress the suffix on output sizes.  Use with --units (except h
	      and H) if processing the output.

       -o, --options
	      Comma-separated  ordered list of columns.	 Precede the list with
	      '+' to append to the default selection of columns.

	      Use -o pv_all to select all  physical  volume  columns,  and  -o
	      pvseg_all to select all Physical Volume segment columns.

	      Use -o help to view the full list of columns available.

	      Column   names  include:	pv_fmt,	 pv_uuid,  dev_size,  pv_name,
	      pv_mda_free,  pv_mda_size,  pv_ba_start,	pv_ba_size,  pe_start,
	      pv_size,	   pv_free,	pv_used,     pv_attr,	  pv_pe_count,
	      pv_pe_alloc_count,  pv_tags,  pv_mda_count,   pv_mda_used_count,
	      pvseg_start, and pvseg_size

	      With  --segments,	 any "pvseg_" prefixes are optional; otherwise
	      any "pv_" prefixes are optional.	Columns	 mentioned  in	vgs(8)
	      can  also	 be  chosen.  The  pv_attr  bits  are:	(a)llocatable,
	      e(x)ported and (m)issing.

	      Produces one line of output for each  contiguous	allocation  of
	      space  on	 each Physical Volume, showing the start (pvseg_start)
	      and length (pvseg_size) in units of physical extents.

       -O, --sort
	      Comma-separated ordered list of columns to  sort	by.   Replaces
	      the default selection. Precede any column with '-' for a reverse
	      sort on that column.

       --rows Output columns as rows.

       --separator Separator
	      String to use to separate each column.  Useful if	 grepping  the

	      Produce  output immediately without sorting or aligning the col‐
	      umns properly.

       --units hHbBsSkKmMgGtTpPeE
	      All sizes are output in these units: (h)uman-readable,  (b)ytes,
	      (s)ectors,  (k)ilobytes,	(m)egabytes, (g)igabytes, (t)erabytes,
	      (p)etabytes, (e)xabytes.	Capitalise to use  multiples  of  1000
	      (S.I.)  instead  of  1024.   Can	also specify custom units e.g.
	      --units 3M

	      When used with --nameprefixes, output values in the  field=value
	      pairs are not quoted.
