NAME
       innwatch - monitor innd.

SYNOPSIS
       innwatch [ -l logfile ] [ -t seconds ]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       -l     To specify a log file to watch, other than the default of news.crit, use the ``-l''
	      flag.

       -t     To change the period between check from the default, use the ``-t'' flag.
