VACFS(4) FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual VACFS(4)

vacfs - a Venti-based file system

vacfs [ -dip ] [ -h host ] [ -m mtpt ] [ -s srvname ] [ -M mem ] vacfile

Vacfs interprets the file system created by vac(1) so that it can be mounted into a Plan 9 file hierarchy. The data for the file system is stored on a Venti server with a root fingerprint specified in vacfile. Vacfs is currently rather limited: access is read-only, clients are not authenticated, and groups are assumed to contain a single member with the same name. These restrictions should eventually be removed.
Options to vacfs are:
Print debugging information to standard error.
-h host
The network address of the Venti server. The default is taken from the environment variable venti. If this variable does not exist, then the default is the metaname $venti.
Use file descriptors 0 and 1 as the 9P communication channel rather than create a pipe.
-m mtpt
The location to mount the file system. The default is not to mount.
Disables permission checking.
The name of the 9P service to post. The default is, where name is vacfile without any directory name or extension.
-M mem
The amount of memory, in bytes, allocated to the block cache. The default is 16M.
