6.33 List Partitions

list partitions [device] [mask] [more|all]

Print a list of partitions based on the options. If no command options are specified, all data partitions are listed.

nlvm [-t] list partitions [device] [mask] [more|all]
Command Options
device=device_name

Print a list of the partitions on the specified device.

Example

device=sdb
mask=<free|all|nss|nssfree>

Print a list of the partitions that meet the specified mask option.

Mask Options
free

Print a list of only the free space partitions.

all

Print a list of both data and free space partitions.

nss

Print a list of only NSS type partitions.

nssfree

Print a list of free space that can be used to create NSS partitions. This option combines contiguous free space together to give a true view of available space.

Example

mask=nss
-t , --terse

Use this NLVM option to format the output for parsing.

more

Prints more information than appears in the standard output. It can be used with or without the -t NLVM option.

Example

more
all

Prints detailed information about each of the partitions. This is the same information that is printed for the nlvm list partition <partition_name> command. It can be used with or without the -t NLVM option.

Example

all
Command Example
nlvm list partitions device=sdb mask=nss

Print a list of partitions of type nss on the /dev/sdb device.

Response Parameters

You can issue the commands with the --terse NLVM option to output the same information in a format that is more easily parsed.

Standard Output

The command returns the following information about the partitions on the server:

Label

Description

Name

Name of the partition

Type

Partition type in both hex and type name if known

Start

Starting sector of the partition

Size

Size of the partition in MB, GB, or TB

Device

Device the partition is on, such as sda or raid1

More Output

The command returns the following additional information about the partitions on the server:

Label

Description

Shared

Whether the partition is marked Shareable for Clustering (1, 0)

M:M

Major:minor numbers of the partition (if applicable)

Pool

Name of the NSS pool using this partition (if applicable)

All Output

If the all option is used, the command returns the same information about each partition as is displayed for the nlvm list partition <partition_name> command.
