s3fs allows Linux and macOS to mount an S3 bucket via FUSE. s3fs preserves the native object format for files, allowing use of other tools like AWS CLI.

Please extend updatedb.conf by adding "fuse.s3fs" to the PRUNEFS statement. This prevents updatedb from crawling these remote storage locations which causes poor performance. The decreased performance is often reported as an error:

An example output of /etc/mtab for reference:
# cat /etc/mtab
s3fs /s3/mybucket fuse.s3fs rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0 0 0
