NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for rump_nfs (netbsd section 8)

RUMP_NFS(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			      RUMP_NFS(8)

     rump_nfs -- mount a nfs share with a userspace server

     file-system PUFFS
     pseudo-device putter

     rump_nfs [options] share mountpoint

     NOTE! This manual page describes features specific to the rump(3) file server.  Please see
     mount_nfs(8) for a full description of the available command line options.

     The rump_nfs utility can be used to mount nfs file systems.  It uses rump(3) and p2k(3) to
     facilitate running the file system as a server in userspace.  As opposed to mount_nfs(8),
     rump_nfs does not use file system code within the kernel and therefore does not require ker-
     nel support except puffs(4).  Apart from a minor speed penalty there is no downside with
     respect to in-kernel code.

     Even though the rump_nfs file system client runs within a virtual rump kernel in userspace,
     it uses host network services (by means of ``rump sockin'').  This means that regardless of
     whether using rump_nfs or mount_nfs(8), the same network configurations will be used.  Cur-
     rently, ``sockin'' supports IPv4.

     To use rump_nfs via mount(8), the flags -o rump and -t nfs should be given.  Similarly,
     rump_nfs is used instead of mount_nfs(8) if ``rump'' is added to the options field of

     p2k(3), puffs(3), rump(3), mount_nfs(8)

     The rump_nfs utility first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.
