Comment 3 Alasdair Kergon 2006-05-30 08:48:02 EDT
Using the command "vgs  --options vg_name,pv_name" is possible to show all the
VG configured in the system with the related PV.
According to the vgs man page is possible to append to the command a specific VG
name to filter the output information. If you do so (e.g. "vgs  --options
vg_name,pv_name mainvolume" where "mainvolume" is one existent volume name) the
command interpret the volume name as a physical volume name (as in pvs command).
Comment 4 Alasdair Kergon 2006-05-30 08:50:43 EDT
Yes, that needs to be fixed in all the reporting commands.

Comment 7 Dave Wysochanski 2006-12-21 16:05:02 EST
I spent some time looking at this and could not come up with a simple fix.  I
think it requires some thought or insight I do not yet have - do not completely
grok the lvm code yet - or requires some rework of the code.  Attached my
analysis in #6.

Note though that the issue of specifying vgs on the cmdline is really just
filtering the output, and this can be done by piping to awk, perl, etc - might
not be pretty in some larger deployments though and certainly not efficient.
