NAME
nfarchive - archive notesfiles
SYNOPSIS
nfarchive [ -# ] [ -d ] [ -m- or -m+ ] [ -w# ] [ -f file ] topic [ ... ]
DESCRIPTION
Nfarchive is used to expire notes that have not been modified in a certain amount of time. Archives are stored in ``archive notesfiles''. The -# parameter is the number of days a notestring must be idle (no new responses) before being eligible for archival. Expired notestrings are either deleted or placed in an archive. The -d parameter tells nfarchive to delete expired notestrings. If unselected, the expired notestrings are placed in an archive. The -m+ option specifies that only notes marked with a director message are eligible for expiration. -m- specifies that only notes without a director message are eligible for expiration. By default, the expiration algorithm is indifferent to a note's director message status. The -w# option specified the working set size for the expired notesfiles. The specified number represents the minimum number of notes to leave in the notesfile. The expiration threshold, working set size, expiration action, and director message requirements can all be specified as a director's option in each notesfile. Specific values override what is specified on the nfarchive command line. A default value specifies using the value specified on the command line. The -f parameter specifies a file containing a list of notesfiles to archive. Notesfiles can also be speci- fied on the command line. By default, the archive of notesfile /usr/spool/notes/somenotes is in /usr/spool/oldnotes/somenotes. The ar- chive of /some/other/place/somenotes also defaults to /usr/spool/oldnotes/somenotes. To prevent collisions of this nature, mapping between active and archive notesfiles is implemented. The file /usr/spool/notes/.utili- ties/net.alias/Archive-into contains lines of the form: active-notesfile:archive notesfile Lines in this file beginning with `#' are comments. Notesfiles without an entry in this file are archived into the /usr/spool/oldnotes directory with the appropriate last component. When initially created, an archive notesfile has an access list matching its active counterpart. Currently, only directors are allowed to write in an archive notesfile. Nfarchive refuses to archive an archive notes- file.
