       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.
