       faxwatch - monitor low-level HylaFAX server actions


       /usr/sbin/faxwatch [ -g ] [ -l ] [ -h host ] trigger-expression


       faxwatch  registers  interest  in  one  or more events on a HylaFAX server and then prints
       subsequent event messages to the standard output.  The faxwatch program is intended mainly
       for testing the event distribution mechanism used by the HylaFAX servers.

       The  trigger-expression is supplied as an argument to a ``SITE TRIGGER'' command passed to
       the hfaxd(8) The syntax for this expression is:


       where <class> defines a class of events and is one of:

       J      for job-related events,

       S      for fax send-related events,

       R      for fax receive-related events, and

       M      for modem-related events.

       A <mask> is a 4-hex-digit mask of trigger events (see  the  table  below).   If  ``*''  is
       specified then all events in the class are matched.

       An  <id> can be used to restrict matches to a specific job or modem.  Eventually this will
       need to be generalized for job groups.

       Thus an example specification that would catch any event for the modem on ttyf2  would  be
       ``M<ttyf2>*'',  and  to  be  notified when job 1932 is requeued or completes one would use

       The output from faxwatch is ASCII text that describes each event.  faxwatch runs until  it
       is interrupted.


       -g        Display times and dates in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).  NB: this is the default.

       -h host   Report  the  status  of the server on a specific host.  The host may be either a
                 symbolic name or a network address.  If no -h option is supplied, faxwatch  uses
                 the  FAXSERVER  environment  variable to identify the HylaFAX server to contact.
                 If this variable is  not  set,  then  faxwatch  checks  for  a  setting  in  the
                 configuration  files  (first  in  the  per-user file and then in the system-wide
                 file).  If all of the above fails, then faxwatch attempts to contact a server on
                 the machine where it is run.

       -l        Display times and dates in the local timezone of the server.

       -v        Trace  the  protocol  exchanges  between faxwatch and the hfaxd processes on the
                 standard output.
