DESCRIPTION

       The  uustat command can display various types of status information about the UUCP system.
       It can also be used to cancel or rejuvenate requests made by uucp (1) or uux (1).

       By default uustat displays all jobs queued up for the  invoking  user,  as  if  given  the
       --user option with the appropriate argument.

       If any of the -a, --all, -e, --executions, -s, --system, -S, --not-system, -u, --user, -U,
       --not-user, -c, --command, -C, --not-command, -o, --older-than, -y, --younger-than options
       are given, then all jobs which match the combined specifications are displayed.

       The  -K or --kill-all option may be used to kill off a selected group of jobs, such as all
       jobs more than 7 days old.

OPTIONS

       The following options may be given to uustat.

       -a, --all
            List all queued file transfer requests.

       -e, --executions
            List queued execution requests rather than queued  file  transfer  requests.   Queued
            execution  requests  are  processed  by  uuxqt  (8)  rather  than uucico (8).  Queued
            execution requests may be waiting for some file  to  be  transferred  from  a  remote
            system.  They are created by an invocation of uux (1).

       -s system, --system system
            List  all  jobs  queued  up  for  the  named  system.  These options may be specified
            multiple times, in which case all jobs for all the systems will be listed.   If  used
            with --list only the systems named will be listed.

       -S system, --not-system system
            List  all  jobs  queued  for  systems other than the one named.  These options may be
            specified multiple times, in which case no jobs from any  of  the  specified  systems
            will  be  listed.   If  used  with  --list only the systems not named will be listed.
            These options may not be used with -s or --system.

       -u user, --user user
            List all jobs queued up for the named user.  These options may be specified  multiple
            times, in which case all jobs for all the users will be listed.

       -U user, --not-user user
            List  all  jobs  queued  up for users other than the one named.  These options may be
            specified multiple times, in which case no jobs from any of the specified users  will
            be listed.  These options may not be used with -u or --user.

       -c command, --command command
            List  all jobs requesting the execution of the named command.  If command is ALL this
            will list all jobs requesting the execution of some command  (as  opposed  to  simply
            requesting a file transfer).  These options may be specified multiple times, in which
            case all jobs requesting any of the commands will be listed.

       -C command, --not-command command
            List all jobs requesting execution of some command other than the named command,  or,
            if  command  is ALL, list all jobs that simply request a file transfer (as opposed to
            requesting the execution of some command).  These options may be  specified  multiple
            times,  in which case no job requesting one of the specified commands will be listed.
            These options may not be used with -c or --command.

       -o hours, --older-than hours
            List all queued jobs older than the given number of hours.  If used with --list  only
            systems whose oldest job is older than the given number of hours will be listed.

       -y hours, --younger-than hours
            List  all  queued  jobs  younger than the given number of hours.  If used with --list
            only systems whose oldest job is younger than the  given  number  of  hours  will  be
            listed.

       -k jobid, --kill jobid
            Kill  the named job.  The job id is shown by the default output format, as well as by
            the -j or --jobid option to uucp (1) or uux (1).  A job may only  be  killed  by  the
            user  who  created the job, or by the UUCP administrator or the superuser.  The -k or
            --kill options may be used multiple times on the command line to kill several jobs.

       -r jobid, --rejuvenate jobid
            Rejuvenate the named job.  This will mark it as having been invoked  at  the  current
            time, affecting the output of the -o, --older-than, -y, or --younger-than options and
            preserving it from any automated cleanup daemon.  The job id is shown by the  default
            output format, as well as by the -j or --jobid options to uucp (1) or uux (1).  A job
            may only be rejuvenated by the user who created the job, or by the UUCP administrator
            or  the  superuser.  The -r or --rejuvenate options may be used multiple times on the
            command line to rejuvenate several jobs.

       -q, --list
            Display the status of commands, executions and conversations for all  remote  systems
            for which commands or executions are queued.  The -s, --system, -S, --not-system, -o,
            --older-than, -y, and --younger-than options may be  used  to  restrict  the  systems
            which  are listed.  Systems for which no commands or executions are queued will never
            be listed.

       -m, --status
            Display the status of conversations for all remote systems.

       -p, --ps
            Display the status of all processes holding UUCP locks on systems or ports.

       -i, --prompt
            For each listed job, prompt whether to kill the job or not.  If the  first  character
            of the input line is y or Y the job will be killed.

       -K, --kill-all
            Automatically  kill  each  listed  job.   This  can  be  useful for automatic cleanup
            scripts, in conjunction with the --mail and --notify options.

       -R, --rejuvenate-all
            Automatically rejuvenate each listed job.  This may not be used with --kill-all.

       -M, --mail
            For each listed job, send mail to the UUCP administrator.  If the job is killed  (due
            to  --kill-all or --prompt with an affirmative response) the mail will indicate that.
            A comment specified by the --comment option may  be  included.   If  the  job  is  an
            execution,  the  initial  portion  of its standard input will be included in the mail
            message; the number of lines to include may be set with the --mail-lines option  (the
            default is 100).  If the standard input contains null characters, it is assumed to be
            a binary file and is not included.

       -N, --notify
            For each listed job, send mail to the user  who  requested  the  job.   The  mail  is
            identical to that sent by the -M or --mail options.

       -W comment, --comment comment
            Specify  a  comment  to be included in mail sent with the -M, --mail, -N, or --notify
            options.

       -B lines, --mail-lines lines
            When the -M, --mail, -N, or --notify options are used to send mail about an execution
            with  standard  input,  this option controls the number of lines of standard input to
            include in the message.  The default is 100.

       -Q, --no-list
            Do not actually list the job,  but  only  take  any  actions  indicated  by  the  -i,
            --prompt, -K, --kill-all, -M, --mail, -N or --notify options.

       -x type, --debug type
            Turn  on  particular  debugging types.  The following types are recognized: abnormal,
            chat, handshake,  uucp-proto,  proto,  port,  config,  spooldir,  execute,  incoming,
            outgoing.  Only abnormal, config, spooldir and execute are meaningful for uustat.

            Multiple  types  may be given, separated by commas, and the --debug option may appear
            multiple times.  A number may also be given, which will turn on that many types  from
            the foregoing list; for example, --debug 2 is equivalent to --debug abnormal,chat.

       -I file, --config file
            Set  configuration file to use.  This option may not be available, depending upon how
            uustat was compiled.

       -v, --version
            Report version information and exit.

       --help
            Print a help message and exit.

EXAMPLES

       uustat --all
       Display status of all jobs.  A sample output line is as follows:
            bugsA027h bugs ian 04-01 13:50 Executing rmail ian@airs.com (sending 1283 bytes)
       The format is
            jobid system user queue-date command (size)
       The jobid may be passed to the --kill or --rejuvenate options.   The  size  indicates  how
       much  data  is  to  be  transferred to the remote system, and is absent for a file receive
       request.   The  --system,  --not-system,  --user,  --not-user,  --command,  --not-command,
       --older-than, and --younger-than options may be used to control which jobs are listed.

       uustat --executions
       Display status of queued up execution requests.  A sample output line is as follows:
            bugs bugs!ian 05-20 12:51 rmail ian
       The format is
            system requestor queue-date command
       The  --system,  --not-system,  --user, --not-user, --command, --not-command, --older-than,
       and --younger-than options may be used to control which requests are listed.

       uustat --list
       Display status for all systems with queued up  commands.   A  sample  output  line  is  as
       follows:
            bugs            4C (1 hour)   0X (0 secs) 04-01 14:45 Dial failed
       This  indicates  the  system,  the number of queued commands, the age of the oldest queued
       command, the number of queued local executions, the age of the  oldest  queued  execution,
       the date of the last conversation, and the status of that conversation.

       uustat --status
       Display conversation status for all remote systems.  A sample output line is as follows:
            bugs           04-01 15:51 Conversation complete
       This  indicates  the  system,  the  date  of the last conversation, and the status of that
       conversation.  If the last conversation failed, uustat will  indicate  how  many  attempts
       have  been  made to call the system.  If the retry period is currently preventing calls to
       that system, uustat also displays the time when the next call will be permitted.

       uustat --ps
       Display the status of all processes holding UUCP  locks.   The  output  format  is  system
       dependent, as uustat simply invokes ps (1) on each process holding a lock.

            uustat --command rmail --older-than 168 --kill-all --no-list --mail --notify --comment "Queued for over 1 week"
       This will kill all rmail commands that have been queued up waiting for delivery for over 1
       week (168 hours).  For each such command, mail will be sent both to the UUCP administrator
       and to the user who requested the rmail execution.  The mail message sent will include the
       string given by the --comment option.  The --no-list option prevents any of the jobs  from
       being listed on the terminal, so any output from the program will be error messages.
