 NAME
      showmount - show all remote mounts

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/showmount [-a] [-d] [-e] [host]

 DESCRIPTION
      showmount lists all clients that have remotely mounted a filesystem
      from host.  This information is maintained by the mountd server on
      host (see mountd(1M)).  The default value for host is the value
      returned by hostname (see hostname(1)).

    Options
      -a   Print all remote mounts in the format

		name:directory

	   where hostname is the name of the client, and directory is the
	   directory or root of the file system that was mounted.

      -d   List directories that have been remotely mounted by clients.

      -e   Print the list of exported file systems.

 WARNINGS
      If a client crashes, executing showmount on the server will show that
      the client still has a file system mounted.  In other words, the
      client's entry is not removed from /etc/rmtab until the client reboots
      and executes:

	   umount -a

      Also, if a client mounts the same remote directory twice, only one
      entry appears in /etc/rmtab.  Doing a umount of one of these
      directories removes the single entry and showmount no longer indicates
      that the remote directory is mounted.

 AUTHOR
      showmount was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
