showmount - show mount information for an NFS server
showmount [ -adehv ] [ --all ] [ --directories ] [ --exports ]
[ --help ] [ --version ] [ host ]
showmount queries the mount daemon on a remote host for information
about the state of the NFS server on that machine. With no options
showmount lists the set of clients who are mounting from that host.
The output from showmount is designed to appear as though it were
processed through ‘‘sort -u’’.
-a or --all
List both the client hostname or IP address and mounted
directory in host:dir format. This info should not be considered
reliable. See the notes on rmtab in rpc.mountd(8).
-d or --directories
List only the directories mounted by some client.
-e or --exports
Show the NFS server’s export list.
-h or --help
Provide a short help summary.
-v or --version
Report the current version number of the program.
Suppress the descriptive headings from the output.
The completeness and accuracy of the information that showmount
displays varies according to the NFS server’s implementation.
Because showmount sorts and uniqs the output, it is impossible to
determine from the output whether a client is mounting the same
directory more than once.
