Hi Experts,

I am using SUSE Linux 11 SP1
Can  you please help me in identifying if disk (/mnt/data)  is mounted in sync or async mode.

/dev/sdb1       /mnt/data        ext3    defaults 1 2

defaults means async but how do I assure its really using async option.

# cat /etc/fstab
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-36782bcb01cc13200159734d606f65254-part1 swap                 swap       defaults              0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-36782bcb01cc13200159734d606f65254-part2 /                    ext3       acl,user_xattr        1 1
/dev/sdb1       /mnt/data        ext3    defaults 1 2
proc                 /proc                proc       defaults              0 0
sysfs                /sys                 sysfs      noauto                0 0
debugfs              /sys/kernel/debug    debugfs    noauto                0 0
usbfs                /proc/bus/usb        usbfs      noauto                0 0
devpts               /dev/pts             devpts     mode=0620,gid=5       0 0
