Checking available Unused Disk Space - AIX

Being somewhat new to UNIX and AIX, I am sure this is going to be an easy question, but nevertheless it has me more than stumped.  I am trying to determine, on AIX Korn Shell 4.2 how to determine if there is any unallocated disk space, and if so, how much.  I have a handy little utility that quite happily reads off all the volumes currently on the system and tells me how much space they have allocated and how much has been used, but I need to know if there is any unallocated disk left in the machine.

Hi Jzaltheral,

I assune you are looking for 'lspv <physical volume name>'
