       lvdisplay  allows  you  to  see the attributes of a logical volume like
       size, read/write status, snapshot information etc.

       lvs (8) is an alternative that provides the  same  information  in  the
       style of ps (1).  lvs is recommended over lvdisplay.


       See lvm for common options and lvs for options given with --columns.

       --all  Include information in the output about internal Logical Volumes
              that are components of normally-accessible Logical Volumes, such
              as mirrors, but which are not independently accessible (e.g. not
              mountable).   For  example,  after  creating  a   mirror   using
              ’lvcreate  -m1  --mirrorlog disk’, this option will reveal three
              internal Logical Volumes, with suffixes mimage_0, mimage_1,  and

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

              The values are:

              * logical volume name
              * volume group name
              * logical volume access
              * logical volume status
              * internal logical volume number
              * open count of logical volume
              * logical volume size in sectors
              * current logical extents associated to logical volume
              * allocated logical extents of logical volume
              * allocation policy of logical volume
              * read ahead sectors of logical volume
              * major device number of logical volume
              * minor device number of logical volume

       -m, --maps
              Display  the  mapping of logical extents to physical volumes and
              physical extents.

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


       "lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol2" shows attributes of that logical volume.
       If snapshot logical volumes have been created for this original logical
       volume,  this  command shows a list of all snapshot logical volumes and
       their status (active or inactive) as well.

       "lvdisplay /dev/vg00/snapshot" shows the attributes  of  this  snapshot
       logical  volume and also which original logical volume it is associated
