autounmountd -- daemon unmounting automounted file systems
autounmountd [-r time] [-t time] [-dv]
The autounmountd daemon is responsible for unmounting file systems
mounted by automountd(8). On startup, autounmountd retrieves a list of
file systems that have the automounted mount option set. The list is
updated every time a file system is mounted or unmounted. After a speci-
fied time passes, autounmountd attempts to unmount a file system, retry-
ing after some time if necessary.
These options are available:
-d Debug mode: increase verbosity and do not daemonize.
-r Number of seconds to wait before trying to unmount an expired file
system after a previous attempt failed, possibly due to file system
being busy. The default value is 600, or ten minutes.
-t Number of seconds to wait before trying to unmount a file system.
The default value is 600, or ten minutes.
-v Increase verbosity.
The autounmountd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
