Name

diskarbitrationd

Synopsis

diskarbitrationd [-d]

Manages communication between processes about the mounting and unmounting of disk volumes. On Tiger, this takes on part of the role formerly held by autodiskmount in Jaguar.

diskarbitrationd starts as a bootstrap daemon, from /etc/mach_init.d/diskarbitrationd.plist (processed by register_mach_bootstrap_servers), and stores its PID in /var/run/diskarbitrationd.pid.

Option

-d

Run in debug mode, preventing daemonization.
