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.
