At last count I was on thirty replies to my vfstab question (and still
rolling in!)- far too many people to list by name but many thanks to
everyone who replied.


Yesterday I manually created a tmpfs filesystem to hold a heavily accessed
sybase tempdb:

created with

mount -F tmpfs -o size=500M swap /syb_temp

the /etc/mnttab entry is:

swap    /syb_temp       tmpfs   @,dev=2 1019755660

I obviously want this fs to be automatically mounted on reboots

My question is what should the /etc/vfstab entry be to facilitate this?

(O/S Solaris 8.)


The consenus was :

#device     device      mount           FS      fsck    mount   mount
#to mount   to fsck     point           type    pass    at boot options
swap        -           /syb_tmp        tmpfs   -       yes     size=500m

- Once again cheers to all who replied.
