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

       showmount - show mount information for an NFS server

       showmount    [ -adehv ]   [ --all ]   [ --directories ]   [ --exports ]
       [ --help ] [ --version ] [ host ]

       showmount queries the mount daemon on a  remote  host  for  information
       about  the  state  of  the NFS server on that machine.  With no options
       showmount lists the set of clients who are  mounting  from  that  host.
       The  output from showmount is designed to appear as though it were pro-
       cessed through ``sort -u''.

       -a or --all
              List both the client hostname or IP address and  mounted  direc-
              tory  in  host:dir  format.  This  info should not be considered
              reliable. See the notes on rmtab in rpc.mountd(8).

       -d or --directories
              List only the directories mounted by some client.

       -e or --exports
              Show the NFS server's export list.

       -h or --help
              Provide a short help summary.

       -v or --version
              Report the current version number of the program.

              Suppress the descriptive headings from the output.

       The completeness and accuracy of the information  that  showmount  dis-
       plays varies according to the NFS server's implementation.

       Because  showmount  sorts  and  uniqs  the  output, it is impossible to
       determine from the output whether a client is mounting the same  direc-
       tory more than once.
