volcheck [options ] [pathnames ]

Solaris only. Check one or more devices named by pathnames to see if removable media has been inserted. The default is to check every device being managed by volume management. Most often used with floppies; volume management usually notices when CD-ROMs have been inserted.

Note: use of the -i and -t options, particularly with short intervals, is not recommended for floppy-disk drives.


-i nsec

Check the device(s) every nsec seconds. The default is every two seconds.

-t nsecs

Keep checking over the next nsecs seconds. Maximum nsecs is 28,800 (eight hours).


Be verbose.
