NAME

       bos_status - Displays the status of server processes

SYNOPSIS

       bos status -server <machine name>  [-instance <server process name>+] [-long]
       [-cell <cell name>]  [-noauth]  [-localauth]  [-help]

       bos stat -s <machine name>  [-i <server process name>+] [-lon]  [-c <cell name>]  [-n]
       [-loc]  [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The bos status command reports the status of processes on the server machine named by the
       -server argument, either

       ·   All of the AFS server processes listed in the /etc/openafs/BosConfig file

       ·   Only these processes named by the -instance argument

OPTIONS

       -server <machine name>
           Indicates the server machine for which to report server process status. Identify the
           machine by IP address or its host name (either fully-qualified or abbreviated
           unambiguously). For details, see bos(8).

       -instance
           Names each process for which to report status. Use the process name assigned with the
           -instance argument to the bos command. The output from the bos status command lists
           the names.

       -long
           Produces more detailed status information.

       -cell <cell name>
           Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this argument with the
           -localauth flag. For more details, see bos(8).

       -noauth
           Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not combine this flag
           with the -localauth flag. For more details, see bos(8).

       -localauth
           Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile
           file. The bos command interpreter presents the ticket to the BOS Server during mutual
           authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more
           details, see bos(8).

       -help
           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

OUTPUT

       The output for a process includes at least one line, which reports one of the following as
       the process's current status:

       ·   "currently running normally". The process's status flag in the BosConfig file is
           "Run". For cron entries, this message indicates only that the command is scheduled to
           run, not necessarily that it was executing when the bos status command was issued.

       ·   "disabled". The process is not running, and its BosConfig status flag is "NotRun".

       ·   "temporarily disabled". The process is not running although its status flag in the
           BosConfig file is "Run". Either an administrator used the bos shutdown command to stop
           it, or the

       ·   BOS Server stopped trying to restart it after numerous failed attempts. In the second
           case, the auxiliary message is "stopped for too many errors".

       ·   "temporarily enabled". The process is running although its status flag in the
           BosConfig file is "NotRun". An administrator has used the bos startup command to start
           it.

       If one of the following special circumstances applies to the process, the indicated
       message appears in its entry:

       ·   "has core file". The process failed and created a core file in the /var/log/openafs
           directory. If the BOS Server was able to restart the process after the failure, the
           primary status is "currently running normally".

       ·   "stopped for too many  errors". The reason for the primary status "temporarily
           disabled" is that the BOS Server's attempts to restart the process all failed.

       The entry for the fs process always includes a second line to report the process's
       "Auxiliary status", which is one of the following:

       ·   "file server running". The File Server and Volume Server components of the File Server
           process are running normally.

       ·   "salvaging file system". The Salvager is running, so the File Server and Volume Server
           are temporarily disabled. The BOS Server restarts them as soon as the Salvager is
           finished.

       The entry for a cron process includes an "Auxiliary status" that reports when the command
       will next execute.

       If the -long flag is used, each entry includes the following additional information:

       ·   The process's type ("simple", "fs", or "cron").

       ·   The day and time the process last started or restarted.

       ·   The number of "proc starts", which is how many times the BOS Server has started or
           restarted the process since it started itself.

       ·   The "Last exit" time when the process (or one of the component processes in the fs
           process) last terminated. This line does not appear if the process has not terminated
           since the BOS Server started.

       ·   The "Last error exit" time when the process (or one of the component processes in the
           fs process) last failed due to an error. A further explanation such as "due to
           shutdown request" sometimes appears. This line does not appear if the process has not
           failed since the BOS Server started.

       ·   Each command that the BOS Server invokes to start the process, as specified by the
           -cmd argument to the bos create command.

       ·   The pathname of the notifier program that the BOS Server invokes when the process
           terminates (if any), as specified by the -notifier argument to the bos create command.

       If the -long flag is provided and the BOS Server discovers that the mode bits on files and
       subdirectories in the local /usr/afs directory differ from the expected values, it prints
       the following warning message:

          Bosserver reports inappropriate access on server directories

       The following chart summarizes the expected mode bit settings. A question mark indicates
       that the BOS Server does not check that bit.

EXAMPLES

       The following example command displays the status of processes on the machine fs3.abc.com:

          % bos status fs3.abc.com
          Instance buserver, currently running normally.
          Instance kaserver, currently running normally.
          Instance ptserver, currently running normally.
          Instance vlserver, currently running normally.
          Instance fs, has core file, currently running normally.
              Auxiliary status is: file server running.
          Instance upserver, currently running normally.
          Instance runntp, currently running normally.

       The following example command displays a detailed status report for the fs and ptserver
       processes on the machine fs1.abc.com.

          % bos status -server fs1.abc.com -instance fs ptserver -long
          Instance fs, (type is fs), currently running normally.
             Auxiliary status is: file server running.
             Process last started at Wed Jan 7 5:34:49 1998 (3 proc starts)
             Last exit at Wed Jan 7 5:34:49 1998
             Last error exit at Wed Jan 7 5:34:49 1998, due to shutdown
                 request
             Command 1 is '/usr/lib/openafs/fileserver'
             Command 2 is '/usr/lib/openafs/volserver'
             Command 3 is '/usr/lib/openafs/salvager'
          Instance ptserver, (type is simple) currently running normally.
             Process last started at Tue Jan 6 8:29:19 1998 (1 proc starts)
