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.
