uusnap - show snapshot of the UUCP system
Uusnap displays in tabular format a synopsis of the current UUCP situation. The format of each line is as follows:
site N Cmds N Data N Xqts Message
Where "site" is the name of the site with work, "N" is a count of each of the three possible types of work (command, data, or remote exe-
cute), and "Message" is the current status message for that site as found in the STST file.
Included in "Message" may be the time left before UUCP can re-try the call, and the count of the number of times that UUCP has tried
(unsuccessfully) to reach the site.

send-uucp - Send Usenet articles via UUCP
send-uucp [SITE ...]
The send-uucp program processes batch files written by innd(8) to send Usenet articles to UUCP sites. It reads a configuration file to
control how it behaves with various sites. Normally, it's run periodically out of cron to put together batches and send them to remote
Any arguments provided to the program are interpreted as a list of sites specfied in send-uucp.cf for which batches should be generated.
If no arguments are supplied then batches will be generated for all sites listed in that configuration file.
The sites to which articles are to be sent must be configured in the configuration file send-uucp.cf. Each site is specified with a line
of the form:
site[:host] [compressor [maxsize [batchtime]]]
The news site name being configured. This must match a site name from newsfeeds(5).
The UUCP host name to which batches should be sent for this site. If omitted, the news site name will be used as the UUCP host name.
The compression method to use for batches. This should be one of compress, gzip or none. Arguments for the compression command may be
specified by using "_" instead of spaces. For example, "gzip_-9". The default value is "compress".
The maximum size of a single batch before compression. The default value is 500,000 bytes.
A comma separated list of hours during which batches should be generated for a given site. When send-uucp runs, a site will only be
processed if the current hour matches one of the hours in batchtime. The default is no limitation on when to generate batches.
Fields are seperated by spaces and only the site name needs to be specified, with defaults being used for unspecified values. If the first
character on a line is a "#" then the rest of the line is ignored.
Here is an example send-uucp.cf configuration file:
zoetermeer gzip 1048576 5,18,22
hoofddorp gzip 1048576 5,18,22
pa3ebv gzip 1048576 5,18,22
drinkel gzip 1048576 5,6,18,20,22,0,2
manhole compress 1048576 5,18,22
owl compress 1048576
This defines seven UUCP sites. The first four use gzip compression and the last three use compress. The first six use a batch size of
1MB, and the last site (able) uses the default of 500,000 bytes. The zoetermeer, hoofddorp, pa3ebv, and manhole sites will only have
batches generated for them during the hours of 05:00, 18:00, and 22:00, and the drinkel site will only have batches generated during those
hours and 20:00, 00:00, and 02:00. There are no restrictions on when batches will be generated for owl or able.
Configuration file specifying a list of sites to be processed.
The usual flags used for a UUCP feed in the newsfeeds file are "Tf,Wfb".
