sharefs - Kernel sharetab filesystem


The sharefs filesystem describes the state of all shares currently loaded by the kernel. It is mounted during boot time as a read-only file at /etc/dfs/sharetab.

Filesystem contents are dynamic and reflect the current set of shares in the system. File contents are described in sharetab(4).

The module may not be unloaded dynamically by the kernel.
