       umount.davfs - Umount-helper to unmount a davfs2 file system


       umount.davfs [-h | --help] [-V | --version]
       umount dir

SYNOPSIS (root only)

       umount.davfs dir


       umount.davfs  is  a  umount  helper  program.  It  is called by the umount(8) command. Its
       purpose  is  to  prevent  the  umount  command  from  returning  unless  mount.davfs   has
       synchronized all its cached files with the webdav server.

       dir  is  the mountpoint where the WebDAV resource is mounted on.  It may be an absolute or
       relative path.

       While for local file systems umount(8) will only return when all  cached  data  have  been
       written  to  disk,  this  is not automatically true for a mounted davfs2 file system. With
       this umount helper the user can rely on the familiar behaviour of umount(8). To inform the
       operating system that the file system uses a network connection, you should always use the
       _netdev option, when mounting as davfs2 file system.

       Depending on the amount of data and the quality of the  connection,  unmounting  a  davfs2
       file system may take some seconds up to some hours.

       If  the  mount.davfs  daemon  encountered serious errors, umount.davfs may return an error
       instead of unmounting the file system. In this case try umount  -i.  The  -i  option  will
       prevent umount(8) from calling umount.davfs.


       -V --version
              Output version.

       -h --help
              Print a help message.

       -f -l -n -r -v -t
              This  options  are  ignored.  They  are  only  recognized  for  compatibility  with


              PID-files of running umount.davfs processes are looked up here.


       No known bugs.
