       clamdtop - monitor the Clam AntiVirus Daemon


       clamdtop [options] [clamdspec ...]


       clamdtop  is  a  tool  to  monitor  one  or  multiple  clamd(s).  It has a (color) ncurses
       interface, that shows the jobs in clamd's queue, memory usage, and information  about  the
       loaded  signature  database.   You  can  specify  on the command-line to which clamd(s) it
       should connect to. By default it will attempt to connect to the local clamd as defined  in


       -h, --help
              Display help information and exit.

       -V, --version
              Print version number and exit.

              Read clamd settings from FILE, to determine how to connect to it.

              Specifies  the clamd to connect to: either a path to the local (unix domain) socket
              of clamd, or an IP address and an port number (that defaults to 3310) to connect to
              a local or remote clamd using TCP/IP.

       up arrow, down arrow

              If you are monitoring multiple clamds then clamdtop will show an overview screen by
              default.  You can use the up arrow and  down arrow keys to cycle through each clamd
              individually, and the overview screen.  A blue bar will highlight the clamd that is
              currently  shown  in  detail. On the overview screen none of the clamds is selected
              (hence no blue bar), and you can see the items from the queue of all clamds.

   The top bar
       Shows the version of clamdtop and the current time.  Clamdtop  updates  the  display  once
       every 2 seconds.

   The list of clamds
       Shows the clamds that clamdtop is connected to, and statistics about them.

              How long clamdtop has been connected (reset upon a reconnect)

       LIV    Total number of live threads

       IDL    Total number of idle threads

   Clamd detailed view
       Primary threads live
              The number of threads that are executing commands or scanning.

       Primary threads idle
              The  number  of  threads  that are idle, waiting for commands. They will exit after
              IdleTimeout (30 seconds).

       Primary threads max
              The maximum number of threads configured.

       Queue items
              The number of items (scanjobs) in clamd's queue that are waiting for a free  thread
              to be processed.

       Queue max
              The maximum number of items observed in clamd's queue.

   The memory usage view
       If available, it will show details on clamd's memory usage:

       Mem heap
              The amount of memory used by libc from the heap in MegaBytes.

       Mem mmap
              The amount of memory used by libc from mmap-allocated memory in MegaBytes.

       Mem unused
              The amount of memory that can be reclaimed by libc.

       Libc used
              The amount of useful memory allocated by libc.

       Libc free
              The amount of memory allocated by libc, that can't be freed due to fragmentation.

       Libc total
              The amount of memory allocated by libc from the system in total.

       Pool count
              The  number  of  mmap  regions  allocated  by clamd' memory pool allocator (for the
              signature database).

       Pool used
              The amount of memory used by clamd's  memory  pool  allocator  (for  the  signature

       Total  The total amount of memory allocated by clamd's memory pool allocator.

   The clamd job queue
              Kind  of  command being executed, STATS is clamdtop, SCAN/CONTSCAN/FILDES/MULTISCAN
              is scan of a file/directory, MULTISCANFILE is scan of one item by a MULTISCAN job.

              The time since the command got queued, until now.

       FILE   The name of the file being processed (if applicable).

       clamdtop  uses  colors if the terminal is capable of colors.  If you know your terminal is
       capable of colors, yet you aren't seeing  any,  then  check  that  your  TERM  environment
       variable  is  set correctly.  For example try setting it to TERM=xterm-color if you are in
       an xterm-like environment. IPv6 support has been added. If  specifying  an  IPv6  address,
       please use the normal IPv6 addressing rules. If specifying both an IPv6 address and a port
       combination, encapsulate the IPv6 address in square brakets (e.g. [::1]:3410).
