   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.

          Use binary values "0" or  "1"  instead  of  descriptive  literal
          values  for columns that have exactly two valid values to report
          (not counting the "unknown" value which denotes that  the  value
          could not be determined).

   --configreport  ReportName
          Make any subsequent -o, --options, -O, --sort or -S, --select to
          apply  for  ReportName  where  ReportName  is  either  'vg'  for
          command's   main   report   or   'log'   for   log  report.   If
          --configreport option is not used to  identify  a  report,  then
          command's  main  report  is assumed. The log report is available
          only if enabled by log/report_command_log lvm.conf(5) setting or
          if --logonly option is used.

          Suppress  the  vgs  report itself and display only log report on

          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 current list of
          columns, '-' to remove from the current list of columns  or  '#'
          to  compact  given  columns.  The  -o  option  can  be repeated,
          providing several lists. These lists are evaluated from left  to

          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
             volume group are missing from the system

          5  Allocation   policy:   (c)ontiguous,    c(l)ing,    (n)ormal,

          6  (c)lustered, (s)hared

   -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.

   -S, --select Selection
          Display  only  rows  that match Selection criteria. All rows are
          displayed with the additional "selected"  column  (-o  selected)
          showing  1 if the row matches the Selection and 0 otherwise. The
          Selection criteria are defined by specifying  column  names  and
          their  valid  values  (that  can  include reserved values) while
          making use of supported comparison operators. See lvm(8) and -S,
          --select   description   for  more  detailed  information  about
          constructing the Selection criteria. As a quick help and to  see
          full  list  of  column  names  that  can  be  used  in Selection
          including the list of reserved values and the set  of  supported
          selection operators, check the output of vgs -S help command.

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

          Produce output  immediately  without  sorting  or  aligning  the
          columns 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.
