innwatch - monitor innd.
innwatch [ -l logfile ] [ -t seconds ]
Innwatch is normally started by rc.news. It periodically -- every <innwatchsleeptime in
inn.conf> seconds -- examines the load average, and the number of free blocks and inodes
on the spool partition, as described by its control file, innwatch.ctl(5).
If the load gets too high, or the disk gets too full, it throttles the server. When the
condition restores, it unblocks the server. In addition, on each pass through the loop it
will check the logfile <pathlog in inn.conf>/news.crit to see if it has been modified, and
send mail to the news administrator if so.
Upon receipt of an interrupt signal (SIGINT), innwatch will report its status in the file
<pathrun in inn.conf>/innwatch.status.
-l To specify a log file to watch, other than the default of news.crit, use the ``-l''
-t To change the period between check from the default, use the ``-t'' flag.
