NAME
       doveadm-instance - Manage the list of running Dovecot instances

SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] instance list
       doveadm [-Dv] instance remove name | base_dir

DESCRIPTION
       The  doveadm instance commands are used to manage the list of Dovecot instances running on
       the server.  In most installations there is only one Dovecot instance, but in  some  cases
       is  may	be  useful  to	have  more  (e.g.  running director proxy and backend in the same
       server).

       Instances are added to the list automatically when Dovecot is started.  Each  instance  is
       uniquely  identified  by  its  base_dir	setting.   Instances  can  be  named  by  setting
       instance_name in each instance's dovecot.conf.  When an	instance  is  named,  it  can  be
       accessed  easily  by  giving  -i instance_name command line parameter for Dovecot binaries
       (e.g. doveadm).

		     feed character (^L).

	      tab    prints a table header followed by tab separated value lines.

	      table  prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.
