lvm fullreport produces formatted output about PVs, PV segments, VGs,
LVs and LV segments. The information is all gathered together for
each VG (under a per-VG lock) so it is consistent. Information
gathered from separate calls to vgs, pvs, and lvs can be inconsistent
if information changes between commands.
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).
The command profile to use for command configuration. See
lvm.conf(5) for more information about profiles.
Config settings for the command. These override lvm.conf
settings. The String arg uses the same format as lvm.conf, or
may use section/field syntax. See lvm.conf(5) for more
information about config.
Set debug level. Repeat from 1 to 6 times to increase the
detail of messages sent to the log file and/or syslog (if
If set to no, the command will not attempt to use device-
mapper. For testing and debugging.
Report/display foreign VGs that would otherwise be skipped.
See lvmsystemid(7) for more information about foreign VGs.
Display help text.
Allows a command to continue with read-only metadata
operations after locking failures.
Used to pass options for special cases to lvmlockd. See
lvmlockd(8) for more information.
Suppress command report and display only log report.
Display long help text.
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 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.
Comma-separated, ordered list of fields to display in columns.
String arg syntax is: [+|-|#]Field1[,Field2 ...] The prefix +
will append the specified fields to the default fields, - will
remove the specified fields from the default fields, and #
will compact specified fields (removing them when empty for
all rows.) Use -o help to view the list of all available
fields. Use separate lists of fields to add, remove or
compact by repeating the -o option: -o+field1,field2 -o-
field3,field4 -o#field5. These lists are evaluated from left
to right. Use field name lv_all to view all LV fields, vg_all
all VG fields, pv_all all PV fields, pvseg_all all PV segment
fields, seg_all all LV segment fields, and pvseg_all all PV
segment columns. See the lvm.conf report section for more
config options. See lvmreport(7) for more information about
An alias for --commandprofile or --metadataprofile, depending
on the command.
Suppress output and log messages. Overrides --debug and
--verbose. Repeat once to also suppress any prompts with
Run the command in a special read-only mode which will read
on-disk metadata without needing to take any locks. This can
be used to peek inside metadata used by a virtual machine
image while the virtual machine is running. No attempt will be
made to communicate with the device-mapper kernel driver, so
this option is unable to report whether or not LVs are
actually in use.
Overrides current output format for reports which is defined
globally by the report/output_format setting in lvm.conf.
basic is the original format with columns and rows. If there
is more than one report per command, each report is prefixed
with the report name for identification. json produces report
output in JSON format. See lvmreport(7) for more information.
Output columns as rows.
Select objects for processing and reporting based on specified
criteria. The criteria syntax is described by --select help
and lvmreport(7). For reporting commands, one row is
displayed for each object matching the criteria. See
--options help for selectable object fields. Rows can be
displayed with an additional "selected" field (-o selected)
showing 1 if the row matches the selection and 0 otherwise.
For non-reporting commands which process LVM entities, the
selection is used to choose items to process.
String to use to separate each column. Useful if grepping the
Report/display shared VGs that would otherwise be skipped when
lvmlockd is not being used on the host. See lvmlockd(8) for
more information about shared VGs.
Comma-separated ordered list of columns to sort by. Replaces
the default selection. Precede any column with - for a reverse
sort on that column.
Run in test mode. Commands will not update metadata. This is
implemented by disabling all metadata writing but nevertheless
returning success to the calling function. This may lead to
unusual error messages in multi-stage operations if a tool
relies on reading back metadata it believes has changed but
Produce output immediately without sorting or aligning the
All sizes are output in these units: human-(r)eadable with '<'
rounding indicator, (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. Custom units can be specified, e.g.
When used with --nameprefixes, output values in the
field=value pairs are not quoted.
Set verbose level. Repeat from 1 to 4 times to increase the
detail of messages sent to stdout and stderr.
Display version information.
Do not prompt for confirmation interactively but always assume
the answer yes. Use with extreme caution. (For automatic no,
Volume Group name. See lvm(8) for valid names.

Size is an input number that accepts an optional unit. Input
units are always treated as base two values, regardless of
capitalization, e.g. 'k' and 'K' both refer to 1024. The
default input unit is specified by letter, followed by |UNIT.
UNIT represents other possible input units: bBsSkKmMgGtTpPeE.
b|B is bytes, s|S is sectors of 512 bytes, k|K is kilobytes,
m|M is megabytes, g|G is gigabytes, t|T is terabytes, p|P is
petabytes, e|E is exabytes. (This should not be confused with
the output control --units, where capital letters mean
multiple of 1000.)
