I was stuck for a bit setting up sshfs+autofs ala this guide:
I had an automount process that had started when the configuration wasn’t correct and had to -9 it before things were working.
I get pretty nice performance out of sshfs: I haven’t run any benchmarks but remotely tunneled operations seem faster than the equivalents over a local samba mount.
Though I do occasionally find myself finding/grepping on the mount instead of with a direct shell (doh!) I’ve found it’s sped up parts of my development workflow.
I would like to take the time to get together a script in place to allow passphrased keys — my only real problem with this setup.
