       exiqsumm - Summarising the queue


       exiqsumm [-a] [-c]


       The  exiqsumm  utility  is a Perl script which reads the output of exim -bp and produces a
       summary of the messages on the queue.  Thus, you use it by running a command such as

         exim -bp | exiqsumm

       The output consists of one line for each domain that has messages waiting for  it,  as  in
       the following example:

           3   2322   74m   66m

       This  lists  the  number of messages for the domain, their total volume, and the length of
       time that the oldest and the newest messages have been waiting.  By default the output  is
       sorted  on the domain name, but exiqsumm has the options -a and -c, which cause the output
       to be sorted by oldest message and by count of messages, respectively.

       The output of exim -bp contains the original  addresses  in  the  message,  so  this  also
       applies  to  the output from exiqsumm.  No domains from addresses generated by aliasing or
       forwarding are included (unless the “one_time” option of the redirect router has been used
       to convert them into ‘top level’ addresses).


       This  manual  page  needs  a major re-work. If somebody knows better groff than us and has
       more experience in writing manual pages, any patches would be greatly appreciated.
