 NAME
      rmtab - local file system mount statistics

 DESCRIPTION
      File /etc/rmtab contains a record of all clients that mounted remote
      file systems from this machine.  Whenever a remote mount is done, an
      entry is made in the rmtab file of the machine serving that file
      system.  umount removes the entry of a remotely mounted file system.
      umount -a broadcasts to all servers that they should remove all
      entries from rmtab created by the sender of the broadcast message.
      The table is a series of lines of the following form:

	   hostname:directory

      This table only preserves information between crashes, and is read
      only by mountd when it starts (see mountd(1M)).  mountd keeps an in-
      core table to handle requests from commands such as showmount and
      shutdown (see showmount(1M) and shutdown(1M)).

 WARNINGS
      Although the rmtab table is close to the truth, it is not always
      totally accurate.
