nmountall, numountall -- mount, unmount multiple filesystems
The nmountall command is used to mount NFS
filesystems according to entries in
/etc/default/filesys. It is strongly recommended
that the NFS mount option, bg, be used for
filesystems which are mounted automatically during
startup. This will prevent startup processing from hanging
while trying to mount a filesystem from a very slow or dead
The numountall command causes all NFS mounted
filesystems to be unmounted. Processes which hold open
files or have current directories on these filesystems are
killed by being sent a series of signals. The first signal
sent is SIGHUP. One second later,
SIGTERM will be sent. Finally, one second later,
SIGKILL will be sent.
These commands may be executed only by the super user.
nmountall will print the mount commands that it
will run before it runs them.
The numountall command prints the list of
process-ids to which it sent signals. The list of
filesystems which are being unmounted is also printed.
The information displayed in Column 3 will appear only if the
filesystem was mounted read-only.
