FINDMNT(8)                                                          FINDMNT(8)



NAME
       findmnt - find a filesystem

SYNOPSIS
       findmnt [options]

       findmnt [options] device|mountpoint

       findmnt [options] [--source] device [--target] mountpoint

DESCRIPTION
       findmnt  will list all mounted filesytems or search for a filesystem.  The findmnt command is able to search in
       /etc/fstab, /etc/fstab.d, /etc/mtab or /proc/self/mountinfo.   If  device  or  mountpoint  is  not  given,  all
       filesystems are shown.

       The command prints all mounted filesystems in the tree-like format by default.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
              Print help and exit.

       -s, --fstab
              Search in /etc/fstab and /etc/fstab.d.  The output is in the list format (see --list).

       -m, --mtab
              Search in /etc/mtab.  The output is in the list format (see --list).

       -k, --kernel
              Search in /proc/self/mountinfo.  The output is in the tree-like format.  This is the default.

       -c, --canonicalize
              Canonicalize all printed paths.

       -d, --direction word
              The search direction - forward or backward.

       -e, --evaluate
              Convert all tags (LABEL or UUID) to the device names.

       -f, --first-only
              Print the first matching filesystem only.

       -i, --invert
              Invert the sense of matching.

       -l, --list
              Use  the  list output format. This output format is automatically enabled if the output is restricted by
              -t, -O, -S or -T option and the option --submounts is not used.

       -v, --nofsroot
              Do not print a [/dir] in the SOURCE column for bind-mounts or btrfs subvolumes.

       -n, --noheadings
              Do not print a header line.

       -u, --notruncate
              Do not truncate text in columns.  The default is to not truncate the  TARGET,  SOURCE,  UUID  and  LABEL
              columns.  This option disables text truncation also in all other columns.

       -O, --options list
              Used  to  limit  the set of printed filesystems.  More than one option may be specified in a comma-sepa-
              rated list.  The -t and -O options are cumulative in effect.  It is  different  from  -t  in  that  each
              option  is  matched  exactly; a leading no at the beginning of one option does not negate the rest.  For
              more details see mount(8).

       -o, --output list
              Define output columns.  Currently supported  are  SOURCE,  TARGET,  FSTYPE,  OPTIONS,  VFS-OPTIONS,  FS-
              OPTIONS,  LABEL and UUID.  The TARGET column contains tree formatting if the --list or --raw options are
              not specified.

       -r, --raw
              Use raw output format.

       -a, --ascii
              Use ascii characters for tree formatting.

       -t, --types list
              Used to limit the set of printed filesystems.  More than one type may be specified in a  comma-separated
              list.   The list of filesystem types can be prefixed with no to specify the filesystem types on which no
              action should be taken.  For more details see mount(8).

       -R, --submounts
              Print recursively all submounts for the selected filesystems. The restrictions defined  by  options  -t,
              -O,  -S,  -T and --direction are not applied to submounts. All submounts are always printed in tree-like
              order. The option enables the tree-like output format by default. This option has no effect  for  --mtab
              or --fstab.

       -S, --source spec
              Explicitly define the mount source.  Supported are device, LABEL= or UUID=.

       -T, --target dir
              Explicitly define the mount target (mountpoint directory).

EXAMPLES
       findmnt --fstab -t nfs
              Prints all nfs filesystems defined in /etc/fstab.

       findmnt --fstab /mnt/foo
              Prints  all  /etc/fstab  filesystems  where  the  mountpoint directory is /mnt/foo.  It also prints bind
              mounts where /mnt/foo is a source.

       findmnt --fstab --target /mnt/foo
              Prints all /etc/fstab filesystems where the mountpoint directory is /mnt/foo.

       findmnt --fstab --evaluate
              Prints all /etc/fstab filesystems and converts LABEL= and UUID= tags to the real device names.

       findmnt -n --raw --evaluate --output=target LABEL=/boot
              Prints only the mountpoint where the filesystem with label "/boot" is mounted.
