[Tru64 UNIX] Performs a tail -f on the file transfer log for the specified system, displaying the end of the log file. Use the Interrupt
key sequence to leave the file and return to the prompt. Prints information about copy requests involving the specific system. If no sys-
tem is specified, information is displayed for all systems.
Note: System name can contain only ASCII characters. [Tru64 UNIX] Displays the uuxqt log file for the specified systems. If no
systems are specified, information is displayed for all systems. [Tru64 UNIX] Displays the last lines of the log file. The number
of lines is determined by the number argument. (To display the lines, the uulog command issues a tail for the specified number of
Individual log files are created for each remote system with which the local system communicates using the uucp, uusend, uuto, or uux com-
Use the uulog command to display a summary of uucp, uusend, uuto, and uux command requests by a system or systems. All of these transac-
tions are logged in files under the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/ directory. The files are named daemon_name/system, where the daemon_name direc-
tory is named for the daemon involved and the system file is named for the remote system the daemon is contacting.
The uucp and uuto commands call the uucico daemon. The uucico activities are logged in the system file in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/uucico
The uux and uusend commands call the uuxqt daemon. The uuxqt activities are logged in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/uuxqt/system file.
You can examine these individual log files by issuing the uulog command directly. However, you can also have these temporary log files
appended to a primary log file that you can then examine. This is called compacting the log files and is handled by uudemon.cleanu, a
shell script in /usr/lib/uucp.
The uulog utility is marked LEGACY in XCU Issue 5.
