Yes of course.
But my goal is to build a backup script to automaticaly create a
snapshot of an LV mounted somewhere. So either the volume group name
or the logical volume name is unknown
In my process I do a 'reverse' research to find it out. Something like that :

#mount | awk some-args                     #and return something like this :
  [...many mounted devices...]
  /dev/mapper/VGNAME-LVNAME /mount/point       #the line i want to find !

#lvdisplay /dev/mapper/VGNAME-LVNAME   | grep "VG Name"

=> the previous command should return the value of the VG name of my
LV but... Not because it fails :)
