Kernel-based automounter for Linux
Autofs is a kernel-based automounter for use with the Linux autofs4 module. It automatically mounts selected file systems when they are used and unmounts them after a set period of inactivity. This provides centrally-managed, consistent file names for users and applications, even in a large and/or frequently changing (network) environment.
