ovdb_stat - Display information from the ovdb database
ovdb_stat [-Hgci] [-r artnumrange] newsgroup [newsgroup ...] ovdb_stat -HklmMtv [-d database]
ovdb_stat displays information from the ovdb database: Berkeley DB statistics, newsgroup data, and overview records. The output can optionally be in HTML format.
-g Newsgroup high water mark, low marker mark, article count, and flag for the given newsgroups (as stored in the ovdb groupinfo database) are displayed. -c Similar to -g, except the high water mark, low water mark, and article count are calculated by actually scanning the overview records and counting them. This can be a lengthy operation on groups with lots of articles. -i Internal data regarding the given newsgroups are displayed. -r artnumrange Overview records are retrieved. The artnumrange parameter may be a single article number, or a range of articles in the format "low-high". -H Output is presented in HTML format. -k Displays lock region statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB lock_stat() call. -l Displays log region statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB log_stat() call. -m Displays global memory pool statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB memp_stat() call. -M Same as -m, and also displays memory pool statistics for each database file. -t Displays log region statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB txn_stat() call. -v Displays ovdb version, and Berkeley DB version. -d database Displays information about the given database, as returned by the Berkeley DB db->stat() call. This operation may take a long time on busy systems (several minutes or more).
ovdb_stat may be safely killed with the INT, TERM, or HUP signals. It catches those signals and exits cleanly. Do not kill ovdb_stat with other signals, unless absolutely necessary, because it may leave stale locks in the database environment.
