Right now ganesha does not DUMP call (to fetch the mount list).
Comment 2 Frank Filz 2015-10-09 19:20:08 EDT
Ganesha does not maintain this information and there is no intention of maintaining the information. It was never correct anyway. If the server restarts, the information is lost, yet the clients are still mounted. Similarly, clients can unmount without ever notifying the server.
