RAMFS(4) RAMFS(4) NAME ramfs - memory file system SYNOPSIS ramfs [ -abcAD ] [ -s srv ] [ -m mnt ] [ -n addr ] [ -V volspec ] DESCRIPTION Ramfs services a ram file system for temporary and volatile files. By default, ramfs mounts itself at /tmp. Option -m can be used to mount it at mnt instead. Flags -abc mount after, before, and allowing file creation, as mount(2) describes. In the same way, options -s and -n request the server to register srv with srv(3) and to listen for clients at net- work address addr. Clients are authenticated via factotum(4) unless flag -A is given or the client connects from the local machine. This program is useful as a volatile place holder of infor- mation that must be exported to the network in a secure way. It is a good candidate to place on it synthetized and con- text information for others to know. The -V option makes ramfs announce the volume with the given volspec and appropriate default constraints for the user name, system name, and location. The -D flag shows 9P messages sent and received, for diag- nostics. In gereral, the options related to Plan B file servers for volumes are described in planbfs(4) and have the same mean- ing in this and other file servers developed for Plan B.
