NAME
     rmtab - remote mounted file system table

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/rmtab

DESCRIPTION
     rmtab contains a table  of  filesystems  that  are  remotely
     mounted   by   NFS  clients.  This  file  is  maintained  by
     mountd(1M), the mount daemon. The data in this  file  should
     be  obtained  only from  mountd(1M) using the MOUNTPROC_DUMP
     remote procedure call.

     The file contains a line of information  for  each  remotely
     mounted filesystem. There are a number of lines of the form:


     hostname:fsname

     The mount daemon adds an entry for any client that  success-
     fully  executes  a mount request and deletes the appropriate
     entries for an unmount request.

     Lines beginning with a hash (' #') are commented out.  These
     lines  are removed from the file by mountd(1M) when it first
     starts up.  Stale entries may accumulate  for  clients  that
     crash without sending an unmount request.

FILES
      /etc/rmtab
