So when I do a pvdisplay and see "1024.00 GB / not usable 8192.00 EB" that is misreported on both sides of the /?

Thanks everyone for all the guidance!

This is what I see for a similar volume:

# pvs -v --units H

# pvs -v --units h

# pvs -v --units G

man page:

       --units hsbkmgtHKMGT
              All   sizes   are   output  in  these  units:  (h)uman-readable,
              (s)ectors,  (b)ytes,  (k)ilobytes,   (m)egabytes,   (g)igabytes,
              (t)erabytes.  Capitalise to use multiples of 1000 (S.I.) instead
              of 1024.  Can also specify custom (u)nits e.g.  --units 3M
