       squatter - create SQUAT indexes for mailboxes


       squatter [ -C config-file ] [ -r ] [ -s ] [ -i ] [ -a ] [ -v ] mailbox...


       Squatter  creates  a new SQUAT index for one or more IMAP mailboxes.  The SQUAT index is a
       unified index of all of the header and body text of each message a  given  mailbox.   This
       index is used to significantly reduce IMAP SEARCH times on a mailbox.

       Squatter  creates  an  index of ALL messages in the mailbox, not just those since the last
       time that it was run (i.e., it does NOT do incremental updates).  Any messages appended to
       the  mailbox  after  squatter  is  run, will NOT be included in the index.  To include new
       messages in the index, squatter must be run again.  For large and active mailboxes, it  is
       recommended to run squatter periodically as an EVENT in cyrus.conf(5)

       NOTE: Messages and mailboxes that have not been indexed CAN still be SEARCHed, just not as
       quickly as those with a SQUAT index.

       Squatter reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5)  file  unless  specified
       otherwise by -C.


       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -r     Recursively  create  indexes  for  all  sub-mailboxes  of  the mailboxes or mailbox
              prefixes given as arguments.

       -s     Skip mailboxes whose index file is older than their current squat  file  (within  a
              small time delta).

       -i     Incremental updates where squat indexes already exist.

       -a     Only  create  indexes  for  mailboxes  which  have  the  shared  /vendor/cmu/cyrus-
              imapd/squat annotation set to "true".

              The value of the  /vendor/cmu/cyrus-imapd/squat  annotation  is  inherited  by  all
              children  of  the  given  mailbox, so an entire mailbox tree can be indexed (or not
              indexed) by setting a single annotation on the root of that tree with  a  value  of
              "true"  (or  "false").   If a mailbox does not have a /vendor/cmu/cyrus-imapd/squat
              annotation set on it (or does not inherit one), then the mailbox  is  not  indexed.
              In other words, the implicit value of /vendor/cmu/cyrus-imapd/squat is "false".

       -v     Increase the verbosity of progress/status messages.
