     amq — automounter query tool

     amq [-f] [-h hostname] [-M mountmap_entry] [-m] [-s] [-u] [-v]
	 [directory] ...

     Amq provides a simple way of determining the current state of the amd(8)
     program.  Communication is by RPC.	 Three modes of operation are sup‐
     ported by the current protocol.  By default a list of mount points and
     auto-mounted filesystems is output.  An alternative host can be specified
     using the -h option.

     If directory names are given, as output by default, then per-filesystem
     information is displayed.

     -f	     Request automounter to flush the internal caches.

     -h hostname
	     Query alternate host hostname.  By default the local host is
	     used.  In an HP-UX cluster, the root server is queried by
	     default, since that is the system on which the automounter is
	     normally run.

     -m	     Request the automounter to provide a list of mounted filesystems,
	     including the number of references to each filesystem and any
	     error which occurred while mounting.

     -s	     Request the automounter to provide system-wide mount statistics.

     -u	     Request the automounter to unmount the named filesystems instead
	     of providing information about them.  Unmounts are requested, not
	     forced.  They merely cause the mounted filesystem to timeout,
	     which will be picked up by amd´s main scheduler thus causing the
	     normal timeout action to be taken.

     -v	     Request the automounter to provide version information.  This is
	     a subset of the information provided by amd´s -v option.

     -M	     Request automounter to add the given map entry to the root map
	     and then trigger a mount request for it.

     amq.x   RPC protocol description.

     Amq uses a Sun registered RPC program number (300019 decimal) which may
     not be in the /etc/rpc database.
