NAME

       innwatch - monitor innd.

SYNOPSIS

       innwatch [ -l logfile ] [ -t seconds ]

DESCRIPTION

       Innwatch  is  normally  started  by  /etc/news/boot.  It periodically —
       every (600) seconds — examines the load average, and the number of free
       blocks  and  inodes on the spool partition, as described by its control
       file, innwatch.ctl(5).

       If the load gets too high, or the disk gets too full, it throttles  the
       server.   When  the  condition  restores,  it  unblocks the server.  In
       addition, on each pass through the  loop  it  will  check  the  logfile
       /var/log/news/news.crit  to  see if it has been modified, and send mail
       to the news administrator if so.

       Upon receipt of an interrupt signal (SIGINT), innwatch will report  its
       status in the file /var/run/innd/innwatch.status.

OPTIONS

       -l     To  specify  a  log  file  to  watch,  other than the default of
              news.crit, use the ‘‘-l’’ flag.

       -t     To change the period between check from  the  default,  use  the
              ‘‘-t’’ flag.
