On a debian server, I have unionfs mounted with no entry in fstab. How can I figure out the command, that was used to mount it (or which directories make up the union) ?

Look into /proc/mounts. In many cases /etc/mtab will also contain this information.

Edit: The above will work for unionfs, the 'original one', implemented as kernel module. As you are using the user-space alternative – unionfs-fuse, things are a bit different.

In this case try looking for unionfs-fuse command line:

ps -wfC unionfs-fuse

Example:

[root@lolek ~]# unionfs-fuse -o cow -o allow_other -o use_ino -o nonempty /tmp/a=RW:/tmp/b=RO /tmp/c 
[root@lolek ~]# ps -wfC unionfs-fuse                                                                 
UID        PID  PPID  C STIME TTY          TIME CMD
root      3943     1  0 19:08 ?        00:00:00 unionfs-fuse -o cow -o allow_other -o use_ino -o nonempty /tmp/a=RW:/tmp/b=RO /tmp/c

Only the mount point and options are displayed in both cases. –  eugene y Apr 1 '10 at 9:08
    
The options should include the directories mounted. It works for me: none /etc unionfs rw,relatime,dirs=/rw/etc=rw:/rootfs_ro/etc=ro 0 0 ('Unionfs 2.5.3 (for 2.6.31)') What UnionFS version do you use? –  Jacek Konieczny Apr 1 '10 at 11:55
    
unionfs-fuse version: 0.21 –  eugene y Apr 6 '10 at 13:10
    
Then it is quite a different thing. –  Jacek Konieczny Apr 6 '10 at 17:03
    
This worked, thanks. –  eugene y Apr 6 '10 at 20:52
