sshfs publishes its mounts as type fuse.sshfs. It would be cool if arv-mount published its mounts as fuse.arvados or something else unique so they're easier to find and manipulate with mount -t and other Unix tools.

#1 Updated by Brett Smith over 2 years ago

  • Subject changed from [FUSE] Provide a unique name for the mount type to [FUSE] Provide a unique mount subtype

4967 note 6 decrees that the type name should be fuse.keep.

#2 Updated by Tom Clegg 2 months ago

5036-arv-mount-type @ fa8c5cdb36fa89af92087d6465b207d65ffc9618 adds a "--subtype FOO" arg, which makes the filesystem type show up as "fuse.FOO".

This won't change any existing setups, but once it's widely deployed we can start taking advantage of it in crunch-job, crunch-run, etc., and consider changing the default too.
