-A|--autobackup y|nSpecifies if metadata should be backed up automatically after a change. Enabling this is strongly advised! See vgcfgbackup(8) for more information.
--commandprofile StringThe command profile to use for command configuration. See lvm.conf(5) for more information about profiles.
--config StringConfig 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.
-d|--debug ...Set debug level. Repeat from 1 to 6 times to increase the detail of messages sent to the log file and/or syslog (if configured).
--driverloaded y|nIf set to no, the command will not attempt to use device-mapper. For testing and debugging.
-h|--helpDisplay help text.
-l|--listDisplay merged destination VG like vgdisplay -v.
--longhelpDisplay long help text.
--profile StringAn alias for --commandprofile or --metadataprofile, depending on the command.
-q|--quiet ...Suppress output and log messages. Overrides --debug and --verbose. Repeat once to also suppress any prompts with answer 'no'.
-t|--testRun 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 hasn't.
-v|--verbose ...Set verbose level. Repeat from 1 to 4 times to increase the detail of messages sent to stdout and stderr.
--versionDisplay version information.
-y|--yesDo not prompt for confirmation interactively but always assume the answer yes. Use with extreme caution. (For automatic no, see -qq.)
VGVolume Group name. See lvm(8) for valid names.
StringSee the option description for information about the string content.
Size[UNIT]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.)lvm(8) for information about environment variables used by lvm. For example, LVM_VG_NAME can generally be substituted for a required VG parameter.
