amq - automounter query tool
amq [-f] [-h hostname] [-m] [-s] [-u] [-v] [directory] ...
amq provides a simple way of determining the current state
of the amd(8)
program. Communication is by RPC. Three modes of operation
by the current protocol. By default a list of mount
points and automounted
filesystems is output. An alternative host can be
the -h option.
If directory names are given, as output by default, then
information is displayed.
The options are as follows:
-f Request automounter to flush the internal caches.
Query alternate host hostname. By default the local
used. In an HP-UX cluster, the root server is
queried by default,
since that is the system on which the automounter is normally
-m Request the automounter to provide a list of mounted
including the number of references to each filesystem and any error
which occurred while mounting.
-s Request the automounter to provide system-wide mount
-u Request the automounter to unmount the named
of providing information about them. Unmounts are
forced. They merely cause the mounted filesystem to
which will be picked up by amd's main scheduler thus
normal timeout action to be taken.
-v Request the automounter to provide version information. This is
a subset of the information provided by amd's -v option.
