       vgs produces formatted output about volume groups.

       See lvm 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,  max_lv,  max_pv, pv_count, lv_count, snap_count,
              vg_seqno, vg_tags, vg_mda_count, vg_mda_free,  and  vg_mda_size,

              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
              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.
