     mount_lfs -- mount a log-structured file system

     mount_lfs [-bdins] [-N nsegs] [-o options] special node

     The mount_lfs command attaches a log-structured file system special device on to the file
     system tree at the point node.  Both special and node are converted to absolute paths before
     use.  In addition, the lfs_cleanerd(8) utility is invoked to clean the file system periodi-

     This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time.

     The options are as follows:

     -b      Instruct the cleaner to count bytes written, rather than segments read, to determine
	     how many segments to clean at once.

     -d      Run lfs_cleanerd(8) in debug mode.

     -i      Instruct the cleaner to use filesystem idle time as the criterion for aggressive
	     cleaning, instead of system load.

     -o      Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma separated string of
	     options.  See the mount(8) man page for possible options and their meanings.

     -N nsegs
	     Clean nsegs segments (or bytes' worth of segments if -b is also specified) at a

     -n      Don't start lfs_cleanerd(8) on the file system.

     -s      Cause lfs_cleanerd(8) to read data in small chunks when cleaning the file system.
