I want to see if there is option with find to ignore traversing into other filesystem.

When I issue find to perform some tests on local filesystem, it returns results with files that are on NFS mount. I believe find is only performing -xdev test on / and not on any subdirectories.

Is that expected behavior?

# find / -mount -nouser -printf "%F %M %u %g %p \n"
nfs drwxrwsr-x 9958 /abc/def/ghi
nfs drwxrwsr-x 9958 /abc/def/jkl

# df -h /abc/def/ghi
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
x.xP x.xP xxxT xx% /abc/def/ghi

# df -h /abc/def
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 xxG xxG xxG xx% /
