NAMElvmetad - LVM metadata cache daemon
SYNOPSISlvmetad [-d] [-s] [-f] [-h] [-V] [-?]
DESCRIPTIONlvmetad is a metadata caching daemon for LVM. The daemon receives notifications from udev rules (which must be installed for LVM to work correctly when lvmetad is in use). Through these notifications, lvmetad has an up-to-date and consistent image of the volume groups available in the system.
By default, lvmetad, even if running, is not used by LVM. See lvm.conf(5).
