NAME

       uutraf - UUCP traffic analyzator and cost estimator.

SYNOPSIS

       uutraf  [  -n,--news  ]  [ -N,--nonews ] [ -s host, --hostname host ] [
       logfile statfile ]

       uutraf [ -h,--help ] [ -v,--version ]

DESCRIPTION

       uutraf takes a logfile and a  statfile  produced  by  Taylor  UUCP  and
       displays  information  summaries  from these files.  For each site, the
       following items will be calculated:

       · number of transferred files,
       · size of transferred files,
       · number of transferred mails,
       · size of transferred mails,
       · the combined (total) size of all the above,
       · average character/second rate (received and sent),
       · Up/Down-ratio (uploads/downloads),
       · Efficiency (up- or downloading time/connection time).

       The site-dependent parameters are taken from /etc/uucp/uutraf.cf.

       These parameters are globally calculated:

       · Start and end period of the logfile file,
       · the totals of the site-dependent values.

OPTIONS

       -h,--help
              stands for help

       -v,--version
              prints out the current version of uutraf and exits.

       -n,--news
              Display separate statistics for news articles.

       -N,--nonews
              Do not display separate statistics for news articles.

       -s name,--hostname name
              sets the local hostname to name. The local hostname is shown  in
              the banner of the output (there is normally no need to specify a
              hostname with -s since, it’s  queried  with  the  gethostname(2)
              call.   This  option  is  only  useful  if  you  are  processing
              logfilesandstatfiles from other hosts).

FILES

       /etc/uucp/uutraf.cf Cost information about UUCP sites.

       David Frey made the original program.
       Yves Arrouye added modifications.

BUGS

       The cost estimation is not as exact as  desired;  some  heuristics  are
       hard-coded.   Complex  scenarios, for example retransmissions of partly
       sent files, will be accounted in a wrong way.

       uutraf(1) assumes that calls are only done during one tariffary  period
       (eg. all low rate calls).

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

       The  original idea and display layout was taken from John Vromans Perl
       script - also named uutraf.
