UUPOLL(8)										UUPOLL(8)

NAME
       uupoll - poll a remote UUCP site

SYNOPSIS
       uupoll [ -ggrade ] [ -n ] system

DESCRIPTION
       Uupoll  is  used  to  force a poll of a remote system. It queues a null job for the remote
       system and then invokes uucico(8).

       The following options are available:

       -ggrade Only send jobs of grade grade or higher on this call.

       -n      Queue the null job, but do not invoke uucico.

       Uupoll is usually run by cron(5) or by a user who wants to hurry a job  along.  A  typical
       entry in crontab could be:

	    0	 0,8,16    *	*    *	  /usr/bin/uupoll ihnp4
	    0	 4,12,20   *	*    *	  /usr/bin/uupoll ucbvax
       This will poll ihnp4 at midnight, 0800, and 1600, and ucbvax at 0400, noon, and 2000.

       If the local machine is already running uucico every hour and has a limited number of out-
       going modems, a more elegant approach might be:

	    0	 0,8,16    *	*    *	  /usr/bin/uupoll -n ihnp4
	    0	 4,12,20   *	*    *	  /usr/bin/uupoll -n ucbvax
	    5	 *	   *	*    *	  /usr/sbin/uucico -r1
       This will queue null jobs for the remote sites at the top of hour; they will be	processed
       by uucico when it runs five minutes later.
