+Enables automatic metadata balancing on physical volumes in the volume group.
+If set to \fBy\fP, LVM will use the values of \fBmetadatabalancmin\fP and
+\fBmetadatabalancemax\fP to determine the set of physical volumes to read and
+write metadata.  Only physical volumes created with a non-zero value of
+\fBmetadatacopies\fP are used.  This option is useful for volume groups
+containing large numbers of physical volumes.  The option is set to \fBn\fP
