NAME

       showmount - show mount information for an NFS server


SYNOPSIS

       /usr/sbin/showmount      [ -adehv ]     [ --all ]     [ --directories ]
       [ --exports ] [ --help ] [ --version ] [ host ]


DESCRIPTION

       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 pro-
       cessesed through ‘‘sort -u’’.


OPTIONS

       -a or --all
              List both the client hostname and mounted directory in  host:dir
              format.

       -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.

       --no-headers
              Suppress the descriptive headings from the output.

BUGS

       The  completeness  and  accurary of the information that showmount dis-
       plays 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 direc-
       tory more than once.
