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.
