       cnfsstat - Show usage of CNFS buffers


       cnfsstat [-ahpPsv] [-c class] [-i seconds] [-l [seconds]] [-m buffer]


       cnfsstat reads pathetc/cycbuff.conf and pathetc/storage.conf to
       determine which CNFS buffers are available.  It then reads the
       specified cyclic buffers and shows their usage status.  cnfsstat can be
       invoked from if docnfsstat is set to true in inn.conf, and the
       result is written to syslog(3).


       -a  Besides its usual output, cnfsstat prints the age of the oldest
           article in the cycbuff.  You may also want to use the -v flag to
           see extended consistency checks.

       -c class
           Only information for the specified class is printed.

       -h  Print usage information and exit.

       -i seconds
           With this option, cnfsstat has an initial sleep of seconds seconds
           at startup.  This is useful when cnfsstat is started at the same
           time as INN, so that it can wait a little before beginning
           performing its checks.

       -l [seconds]
           With this option, cnfsstat prints a status snapshot every seconds
           seconds, and only exits if an error occurs.  When unspecified, the
           default interval is 600 seconds.

           At each iteration, cnfsstat checks whether the cycbuff.conf and
           storage.conf files have been modified, and loads the new
           configuration if needed.

       -m buffer
           Print information about the specified buffer in a format suitable
           for MRTG.

       -p  Print an MRTG config file.

       -P  Write PID into pathrun/

       -s  Write output to syslog(3) instead of standard output.

       -v  Write additional information, especially about consistency checks
           for article storage and the history file.
