What Others Think

If you just after the lvm paths, there's a simpler way: lvs -o lv_path --noheadings You can reproduce the output of your command with the following: lvs -o lv_path,lv_attr,lv_size,origin,snap_percent,move_pv,mirror_log,copy_percent,convert_lv The lvm tools are very versatile. You can select which fields are displayed (with --fields or -o), and sort (with --sort or -O). See the man pages for lvs, pvs and vgs for a list of all the output fields.

@flatcap: My debian squeeze "lvs" hasn't the lv_path option available. debian package lvm2 version 2.02.66-5

@f4m8: Ah, shame. Fedora 16 is using lvm 2.02.86(2) (2011-07-08).

Thanks. lv_path works on most of my servers.
