NAME
       mounting - event signalling that a filesystem is mounting

SYNOPSIS
       mounting DEVICE=DEVICE MOUNTPOINT=MOUNTPOINT TYPE=TYPE OPTIONS=OPTIONS [ENV]...

DESCRIPTION
       The  mounting  event  is  generated  by the mountall(8) daemon when it is about to mount a
       filesystem.  mountall(8) will wait for all services started by this event to  be  running,
       all  tasks started by this event to have finished and all jobs stopped by this event to be
       stopped before proceeding with mounting the filesystem.

       The DEVICE, MOUNTPOINT, TYPE and OPTIONS environment variables contain the values  of  the
       fstab(5) fields for this mountpoint.

EXAMPLE
       A tool that should be run before mounting the /var filesystem might use:

	      start on mounting MOUNTPOINT=/var
	      task
