Log, .Log - Contains the uucp program log files SYNOPSIS
/usr/spool/uucp/.Log DESCRIPTION
The /usr/spool/uucp/.Log directories contain uucp program log files. The uucp program normally places status information about each trans- action in the appropriate log file each time you use the networking utilities facility. All transactions of the uucico and uuxqt daemons are logged in files named for the remote system concerned. The files are stored in a subdirectory of the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log directory named for the daemon involved. Thus, the log files are named with a form of the following: /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/DaemonName/SystemName The uucp and uuto commands call the uucico daemon. The uucico daemon activities for a particular remote system are logged in the System- Name file in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/uucico directory on the local system. The uux and uusend commands call the uuxqt daemon. The uuxqt daemon activities for a particular remote system are logged in the SystemName file in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/uuxqt directory on the local system. When more than one uucp process is running, however, the system cannot access the standard log file, so it places the status information in a file with a .Log prefix that covers just the single transaction. The uucp program can automatically append the temporary log files to a primary log file. This is called compacting the log files, and is handled by the uudemon.cleanu command, a shell procedure, which combines the log files of the activities of the uucico and uuxqt daemons on a system and stores them in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Old directory. The default is for the uudemon.cleanu command to save log files that are 2 days old. This default can be changed by modifying the appro- priate line in the shell script. If storage space is a problem on a particular system, reduce the number of days that the files are kept in the individual log files. The uulog command can be used to view the uucp program log files.

uucico - file transport program for the uucp system SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/uucp/uucico [-f] [-c type] [-d spool-directory] [-i interface] [-r role-number] [-s system-name] [-x debug-level] DESCRIPTION
uucico is the file transport program for uucp work file transfers. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -f This option is used to "force execution" of uucico by ignoring the limit on the maximum number of uucicos defined in the /etc/uucp/Limits file. -c type The first field in the Devices file is the "Type" field. The -c option forces uucico to only use entries in the "Type" field that match the user specified type. The specified type is usually the name of a local area network. -d spool-directory This option specifies the directory spool-directory that contains the uucp work files to be transferred. The default spool directory is /var/spool/uucp. -i interface This option defines the interface used with uucico. The interface only affects slave mode. Known interfaces are UNIX (default), TLI (basic Transport Layer Interface), and TLIS (Transport Layer Interface with Streams modules, read/write). -r role-number The role-number 1 is used for master mode. role-number 0 is used for slave mode (default). When uucico is started by a program or cron, role-number 1 should be used for master mode. -s system-name The -s option defines the remote system (system-name) that uucico will try to contact. It is required when the role is master; system-name must be defined in the Systems file. -x debug-level Both uux and uucp queue jobs that will be transferred by uucico. These jobs are normally started by the uusched scheduler, for debugging purposes, and can be started manually. For example, the shell Uutry starts uucico with debugging turned on. The debug-level is a number between 0 and 9. Higher numbers give more detailed debugging information. FILES
