Description Elias Ross 2014-08-06 23:30:01 UTC
It would be nice to know if, for example, the root partition (or any other partition) was mounted read-only ('ro'), if for example the filesystem had errors and thus was unable to come up properly.

This is primarily for problem detection.

It may be exposed through Hyperic library:


However, the mount options may contain lots of other things not critical. Perhaps a simple 'read only' flag would make sense rather than showing all the mount options. I'm not sure what operating systems other than Linux what might be indicators.

Comment 1 Michael Burman 2014-11-10 13:17:15 UTC
I have added mount options as available trait, so comparing this to previous value should warn you (in case of read-only). And this is a bit more general property for other users also, as those options should not change on their own.

In the master:
