TMPFS(5)                  FreeBSD File Formats Manual                 TMPFS(5)

NAME
     tmpfs - efficient memory file system

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

           options TMPFS

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

           tmpfs_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The tmpfs driver will permit the FreeBSD kernel to access tmpfs file
     systems.

EXAMPLES
     To mount a tmpfs memory file system:

           mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /tmp

SEE ALSO
     nmount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8)

HISTORY
     The tmpfs driver first appeared in FreeBSD 7.0.

AUTHORS
     The tmpfs kernel implementation was written by Julio M. Merino Vidal
     <jmmv@NetBSD.org> as a Google SoC project.

     Rohit Jalan and others ported it from NetBSD to FreeBSD.

     This manual page was written by Xin LI <delphij@FreeBSD.org>.

BUGS
     The tmpfs kernel implementation is currently considered as an
     experimental feature.  Some file system mount time options are not well
     supported.
