Fixed In Version: systemd-219-32.el7
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Feature: Support for automatically unmounting a mounted file system after specified amount of time. This is done via the 'x-systemd.idle-timeout' option that can be used along with other options in /etc/fstab. Reason: Customer asked for it. It's a generally useful feature. Result: The feature was backported from upstream and is now supported.

Description Jayaram 2016-07-11 09:23:47 UTC
Description of problem:

.NFS automount in systemd, but x-systemd.idle-timeout doesn't unmount the filesystem after the specified amount of time


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

RHEL7.2 -- 
3.10.0-327.10.1.el7.x86_64 --
systemd-219-19.el7_2.4.x86_64
nfs-utils-1.3.0-0.21.el7_2.x86_64


How reproducible:

In /etc/fstab the nfs entry as follows;--

~~~
192.168.122.2:/storage /mnt nfs noauto,x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.device-timeout=10,x-systemd.idle-timeout=1800,nofail,timeo=14,nolock 0 0
~~~

Note: here i tried with different timeout value, still not luck

#cat  /var/run/systemd/generator/mnt.mount
=======================
# Automatically generated by systemd-fstab-generator

[Unit]
SourcePath=/etc/fstab
Documentation=man:fstab(5) man:systemd-fstab-generator(8)

[Mount]
What=192.168.122.2:/storage
Where=/mnt
Type=nfs
Options=noauto,x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.idle-timeout=1800,nofail,timeo=14,nolock
=======================

#cat  /var/run/systemd/generator/mnt.automount
=====================
# Automatically generated by systemd-fstab-generator

[Unit]
SourcePath=/etc/fstab
Documentation=man:fstab(5) man:systemd-fstab-generator(8)
Before=remote-fs.target
[Automount]
Where=/mnt
=====================

>> Reboot the machine

>> Access the share by 
#df -h /mnt
Filesystem              Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
192.168.122.2:/storage  6.5G  2.4G  3.8G  39% /mnt



Actual results:

It is not unmonting the share after the timeout value 1800 which is 30min. 


Expected results:

It should unmount the NFS share after the timeout value.

Comment 5 giulioo 2016-10-24 17:37:55 UTC
According to 
  https://github.com/systemd/systemd/blob/master/NEWS
the "x-systemd.idle-timeout" directive was added in systemd 220.

RHEL7.2 ships with systemd-219-19.el7_2.13.x86_64
and, according to the rpm's changelog, nothing related to it has been manually patched:

$ rpm -q systemd
systemd-219-19.el7_2.13.x86_64
$ rpm -ql --changelog systemd|grep idle
$

so it seems it's normal for RHEL7's systemd to ignore it.

I'll provide a testing build shortly.
