     automount — mount autofs on the appropriate mount points

     automount [-v] [-c] [-u] [-t timeout]

     automount reads the /etc/auto_master file, and any local or network maps
     it includes, and mounts autofs on the appropriate mount points to cause
     mounts to be triggered.  It will also attempt to unmount any top-level
     autofs mounts that correspond to maps no longer found.

     -v	     Print more detailed information about actions taken by automount.

     -c	     Tell automountd(8) to flush any cached information it has.

     -u	     Unmount all non-busy automounted mounts.  Top-level triggers are

     -t timeout
	     Set to timeout seconds the time after which an automounted file
	     system will be unmounted if it hasn't been referred to within
	     that period of time.  The default is 10 minutes (600 seconds).

	     configuration file for automount and automountd.

	     The master map contains a list of directories to be controlled by
	     autofs and their associated direct map or indirect maps.
