The lspv command displays the information about the physical volume if the specific

physical volume name is specified. If you do not add flags to the lspv command, by default

all the available physical volumes are printed along with the following information:

* Physical disk name.

* Physical volume identifiers (PVIDs).

* The volume group, if any, that the physical volume belongs to or the label,if any,

locked with the lkdev command.

* The state of the volume group.

Active-When the volume group is varied on.

Concurrent-When the volume group is varied on in the concurrent mode.

Locked-When the physical volume is locked with the lkdev command.
