Berkeley automounter suite of utilities

The Berkeley Automounter, Amd, maintains a cache of mounted file systems, and lets users dynamically control which file system to mount with selectors. Selectors, which may be combined, allow decisions of the form "hostname is this," or "architecture is not that." Amd also supports numerous file system types, including NFS, UFS and the novel program file system. The combination of selectors and multiple file system types means that identical configuration files can be used on all machines. Amd will not hang if a remote server goes down, and can determine when a remote server has become inaccessible and mount replacement file systems when they become available.
