volatility3.plugins.linux.mountinfo module

class MountInfo(context, config_path, progress_callback=None)[source]

Bases: PluginInterface

Lists mount points on processes mount namespaces

  • context (ContextInterface) – The context that the plugin will operate within

  • config_path (str) – The path to configuration data within the context configuration data

  • progress_callback (Optional[Callable[[float, str], None]]) – A callable that can provide feedback at progress points


Constructs a HierarchicalDictionary of all the options required to build this component in the current context.

Ensures that if the class has been created, it can be recreated using the configuration built Inheriting classes must override this to ensure any dependent classes update their configurations too

Return type


property config: HierarchicalDict

The Hierarchical configuration Dictionary for this Configurable object.

property config_path: str

The configuration path on which this configurable lives.

property context: ContextInterface

The context object that this configurable belongs to/configuration is stored in.

classmethod get_mountinfo(mnt, task)[source]

Extract various information about a mount point. It mimics the Linux kernel show_mountinfo function.

Return type

Optional[Tuple[int, int, str, str, str, List[str], List[str], str, str, List[str]]]

classmethod get_requirements()[source]

Returns a list of Requirement objects for this plugin.

Return type


classmethod make_subconfig(context, base_config_path, **kwargs)

Convenience function to allow constructing a new randomly generated sub-configuration path, containing each element from kwargs.

  • context (ContextInterface) – The context in which to store the new configuration

  • base_config_path (str) – The base configuration path on which to build the new configuration

  • kwargs – Keyword arguments that are used to populate the new configuration path


The newly generated full configuration path

Return type


property open

Returns a context manager and thus can be called like open


Executes the functionality of the code.


This method expects self.validate to have been called to ensure all necessary options have been provided


A TreeGrid object that can then be passed to a Renderer.


Sets the file handler to be used by this plugin.

Return type


classmethod unsatisfied(context, config_path)

Returns a list of the names of all unsatisfied requirements.

Since a satisfied set of requirements will return [], it can be used in tests as follows:

unmet = configurable.unsatisfied(context, config_path)
if unmet:
    raise RuntimeError("Unsatisfied requirements: {}".format(unmet)
Return type

Dict[str, RequirementInterface]

class MountInfoData(mnt_id, parent_id, st_dev, mnt_root_path, path_root, mnt_opts, fields, mnt_type, devname, sb_opts)

Bases: tuple

Create new instance of MountInfoData(mnt_id, parent_id, st_dev, mnt_root_path, path_root, mnt_opts, fields, mnt_type, devname, sb_opts)

count(value, /)
