MOUNT_SYSCTLFS(8)           System Manager's Manual          MOUNT_SYSCTLFS(8)

NAME
     mount_sysctlfs -- mount sysctl namespace as a directory hierarchy

SYNOPSIS
     mount_sysctlfs [-r] [-o mntopts] sysctlfs mount_point

DESCRIPTION
     The mount_sysctlfs program provides the sysctl(8) hierarchy through the
     file system namespace.  It is possible to browse the tree, query node
     values and modify them.  By default, the node contents are interpreted as
     ASCII.  If the -r flag is given, the server uses raw mode and displays
     node contents as they are received from the kernel (binary).

SEE ALSO
     puffs(3), puffs(4), mount(8), sysctl(8)

HISTORY
     The mount_sysctlfs utility first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.

CAVEATS
     Raw mode [-r] does not currently support node modification.
