       vgs produces formatted output about volume groups.

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       --all  List all volume groups.  Equivalent to not specifying any volume

	      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 vg_all to select all volume group columns.

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

	      Column   names   include:	 vg_fmt,  vg_uuid,  vg_name,  vg_attr,
	      vg_size,	vg_free,  vg_sysid,  vg_extent_size,  vg_extent_count,
	      vg_free_count,  vg_profile,  max_lv, max_pv, pv_count, lv_count,
	      snap_count, vg_seqno, vg_tags,  vg_mda_count,  vg_mda_free,  and
	      vg_mda_size, vg_mda_used_count.

	      Any  "vg_"  prefixes  are optional.  Columns mentioned in either
	      pvs(8) or lvs(8) can also be chosen, but columns cannot be taken
	      from both at the same time.

	      The vg_attr bits are:

	      1	 Permissions: (w)riteable, (r)ead-only

	      2	 Resi(z)eable

	      3	 E(x)ported

	      4	 (p)artial: one or more physical volumes belonging to the vol‐
		 ume group are missing from the system

	      5	 Allocation   policy:	(c)ontiguous,	 c(l)ing,    (n)ormal,
		 (a)nywhere, (i)nherited

	      6	 (c)lustered

       -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.
