NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       showmount - Shows remote NFS compatible mounts on a host

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/bin/showmount [-adeT] [-t nnn] [host]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Lists  all mount points in the form: hostname:dirpath.  In
       this form, hostname is the  name  of  a  client  that  has
       remotely  mounted  a  directory  from  an  NFS server, and
       dirpath is the directory that  has  been  mounted.   Lists
       only  directories  that  have  been  remotely  mounted  by
       clients.  Shows exports list for host.  Specifies an infinite
  timeout.   The  default timeout value is 25 seconds.
       Specifies a timeout value, in seconds.  The default  timeout
 value is 25 seconds.

       The default value for host is the current hostname.

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies  the  name  of  the NFS server for which you are
       displaying mount information. If this operand is not specified,
 the showmount command uses the current hostname.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  showmount  command shows status information about the
       NFS server on host. By default, it prints the names of all
       hosts  that  have NFS file systems mounted from the server
       host.  See NFS: Network File  System  Protocol  Specification,
  RFC1094,  Appendix  A for a detailed description of
       the protocol.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The mountd daemon running on the server only has  an  idea
       of  the  actual mounts, since the NFS server is stateless.
       showmount will only display the information as  accurately
       as the mount daemon reports it.

       The  default  timeout value of 25 seconds can be too brief
       to read and verify an export list.  If you receive timeout
       messages  when  using the showmount -e command, use either
       the -T or the -t options to increase the timeout value.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies the command path Contains a table of local  file
       systems mounted by remote NFS clients
