I'm not sure I understand your problem with such limited information. Can you elaborate?

I've not seen a problem with using iostat to see disk i/o on an LVM device.
iostat -x 1 10
That reports i/o info for my device-mapper devices.
It may not, in all likelihood, call it by the "friendly"-name that you know it as (such as VolGroup00/LogVol00), but the info should be there for you.
