   vgdisplay  allows  you to see the attributes of VolumeGroupName (or all
   volume groups if none is given) with it's physical and logical  volumes
   and their sizes etc.

   vgs(8)  is  an  alternative  that  provides the same information in the
   style of ps(1).


   See lvm(8) for common options.

   -A, --activevolumegroups
          Only select the  active  volume  groups.  The  volume  group  is
          considered  active  if  at  least  one of its logical volumes is

   -C, --columns
          Display output in columns, the equivalent  of  vgs(8).   Options
          listed are the same as options given in vgs(8).

   -c, --colon
          Generate colon separated output for easier parsing in scripts or
          programs.  N.B. vgs(8) provides considerably more  control  over
          the output.

          The values are:

          1  volume group name
          2  volume group access
          3  volume group status
          4  internal volume group number
          5  maximum number of logical volumes
          6  current number of logical volumes
          7  open count of all logical volumes in this volume group
          8  maximum logical volume size
          9  maximum number of physical volumes
          10 current number of physical volumes
          11 actual number of physical volumes
          12 size of volume group in kilobytes
          13 physical extent size
          14 total number of physical extents for this volume group
          15 allocated number of physical extents for this volume group
          16 free number of physical extents for this volume group
          17 uuid of volume group

   -s, --short
          Give a short listing showing the existence of volume groups.

   -v, --verbose
          Display verbose information containing long listings of physical
          and logical volumes.   If  given  twice,  also  display  verbose
          runtime information of vgdisplay's activities.

          Display version and exit successfully.
