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

     mount_lfs — mount a log-structured file system

     mount_lfs [-dns] [-o options] special node

     The mount_lfs command attaches a log-structured file system special
     device on to the file system tree at the point node.  In addition, the
     lfs_cleanerd(8) utility is invoked to clean the file system periodically.

     This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time.

     The options are as follows:

     -d	     Run lfs_cleanerd(8) in debug mode.

     -o	     Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma sepa‐
	     rated string of options.  See the mount(8) man page for possible
	     options and their meanings.

     -n	     Don't start lfs_cleanerd(8) on the file system.

     -s	     Cause lfs_cleanerd(8) to read data in small chunks when cleaning
	     the file system.
