NAME

       faxcron - HylaFAX routine maintenance script

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/sbin/faxcron [ -n ] [ -l lastrun ]

DESCRIPTION

       faxcron is a command script that does routine upkeep tasks in a HylaFAX spooling directory
       hierarchy.  This script is intended to be invoked from cron(8) on behalf of the  fax  user
       (often  the ``fax'' user is uucp) once a day, with the standard output sent by mail to the
       HylaFAX administrator.  For example, the following crontab might be set  up  for  the  fax
       user:
         25   23    *    *    *   sh /usr/sbin/faxcron | mail FaxMaster

       The faxcron script does the following work:

       ·  report statistics for facsimile transmitted since the last time faxcron was run.

       ·  report statistics for facsimile transmitted in the past week.

       ·  report statistics for facsimile received since the last time faxcron was run.

       ·  report statistics for facsimile received in the past week.

       ·  report any recent calls that failed suspiciously and return the associated trace log;

       ·  purge data that is 30 days or older from the remote machine information directory;

       ·  delete information that is 30 days or older from session trace log files;

       ·  remove files from the tmp directory that are older than 1 day;

       ·  remove files in the received facsimile queue that are 7 days or older;

       ·  report sites that are currently having jobs rejected; and

       ·  force  all  session log files to be owned by the fax user and kept with protection mode
          644.

OPTIONS

       -n        Forces faxcron to run without updating any files.

       -l lastrun
                 Forces the notion of the last time that faxcron was  run  to  be  lastrun.   The
                 value  of  lastrun is a date and time string of the form ``MM/DD/YY HH:MM'' (the
                 date(1) format string ``%D %H:%M'').

       -info n   Set the expiration time for data in the info database to be n days.

       -log n    Set the expiration time for session log data to be n days.

       -rcv n    Set the expiration time for files in the received facsimile queue to be n days.

       -tmp n    Set the expiration time for files in the tmp directory to be n days.

       -mode m   Set the file protection mode for session logs to m (a command line  argument  to
                 chmod(1)).

NOTES

       This  script  requires  nawk(1)  or  gawk(1)  and  a  date  (1)  program that supports the
       ``+format'' option.

       If session logs are to be kept  private  this  script  must  be  modified  to  filter  out
       sensitive  information  such as calling card numbers.  (It should also be run with ``-mode
       0600'' so that session log files are not publicly readable.)
