The Volume Management daemon, vold, creates and maintains a file system image rooted at root-dir that contains symbolic names for floppies, CD-ROMs and other removable devices. The default root-dir is set to /vol if no directory is specified by the -d option.
example# kill -HUP vold_pid
SIGTERMsignal is used:
example# kill -TERM vold_pid
where vold_pid is the process ID of vold.
Never writeback. Volume Management updates media labels with unique information if labels are not unique. This flag keeps Volume Management from changing your media. The default setting is FALSE.
Dump NFS trace information to the log file. The default setting is FALSE.
Provide lots of status information to the log file. The default setting is FALSE (do not provide status info to log file).
Specify an alternate root directory. The default location is /vol. Setting this will also cause other Volume Management utilities to use this as the default root directory.
Specify an alternate configuration file. The default file is /etc/vold.conf.
Specify an alternate log file. The default log file is /var/adm/vold.log.
Change the level (verbosity) of debug messages sent to the log file. The range is 0 to 99 where 0 is nothing and 99 is everything. The default level is 0.
