The -v suboption indicates the verbosity level of the command output.

The format for this suboption is as follows:

-v --verbose number

You specify the number value as an integer from 1 through 10.

You can specify the -v suboption with any vmkfstools option. If the output of the option is not suitable for use with the -v suboption, vmkfstools ignores -v.

Note: Because you can include the -v suboption in any vmkfstools command line, -v is not included as a suboption in the option descriptions.
