test if smbfs is used for mount?


I use mount -t smbfs and my bash script require me to know if a drive is maped as smbfs. I know i can do ps -ef |grep smbfs then use if output is 2(or more lines , then consider some drive is using smbfs. But that doesn't seem to be the most effective way to do it.

Can anyone suggest me a better way to write this line of bash?

You can use the output of /proc/mounts or mount (<- more x-platform) to see what filesystem was used for each mount. Just parse that with sh or your language of choice
mount | grep /sys | awk '{print $5}'
