NAME
     autofs -- automounter filesystem

SYNOPSIS
     options AUTOFS

DESCRIPTION
     The autofs driver is the kernel component of the automounter infrastruc-
     ture.  Its job is to pass mount requests to the automountd(8) daemon, and
     pause the processes trying to access the automounted filesystem until the
     mount is completed.  It is mounted by the automount(8).

OPTIONS
     These options are available when mounting autofs file systems:

     master_options
             Mount options for all filesystems specified in the map entry.

     master_prefix
             Filesystem mountpoint prefix.

EXAMPLES
     To unmount all mounted autofs filesystems:

           umount -At autofs

     To mount autofs filesystems specified in auto_master(5):

           automount
