After having a long debug session and finally finding out that in Fedora (and CentOS) php-fpm has its own mounted /tmp filesystem, which was caused by a systemd setting, PrivateTmp, I am wondering if there is a simple command to show which mounted filesystems a running process sees?


In Linux, you can get this information from


where <pid> is the ID of the process you are interested in. There is also:


which contains additional information but it is in a different, non-/etc/mtab-compatible format.

  • thanks for your anwer. Found the "real" information under /proc/<pid>/mountinfo. Would have saved me hours. By the way its not in /proc/<pid>/mounts (you cannot see there the "real path") – Mandragor Jun 23 '15 at 9:57
