Name
       uustat - uucp status inquiry and job control

Syntax
       uustat [ options ]

Description
       The  command  either displays the status of or cancels previously specified commands, or it provides general status on connections to other
       systems.

Options
       -chour
	  Removes entries older than specified hour.  This option can only be executed by the user or the super-user.

       -jall
	  Reports status of all requests.

       -kjobn
	  Kills specified job.	The killed request must belong to the person issuing the command unless that person has "super-user" privilege.

       -mmch
	  Reports status of accessibility of machine mch.  If mch is specified as all, then the status of all machines known to the local are pro-
	  vided.

       -ohour
	  Reports status of requests which are older than specified hour.

       -ssys
	  Reports status of requests for specified system.

       -uuser
	  Reports status of requests issued by specified user.

       -v Invokes verbose printout option.  If this option is not specified, a status code is printed with each request.

       -yhour
	  Reports status of all requests that are younger than specified hour.

       When  no  options  are given, outputs the status of all requests issued by the current user.  Note that only one of the options -j, -m, -k,
       -c, can be used with the other options.	For example, the command
       uustat -usteve -slimbo -y63 -v

       will print the verbose status of all jobs that were issued by user steve destined for system limbo within the last 63 hours.  The format of
       each job status entry is:
       job# user destination spool_time status_time status
       where the status may be either an octal number or a verbose description.  The octal code corresponds to the following description:

       OCTAL	 STATUS
       00001	 Copy failed for unknown reasons.
       00002	 Permission to access local file is denied.
       00004	 Permission to access remote file is denied.
       00010	 Bad uucp command is generated.
       00020	 Remote system cannot create temporary file.
       00040	 Cannot copy to remote directory.
       00100	 Cannot copy to local directory.
       00200	 Local system cannot create temporary file.
       00400	 Cannot execute uucp.
       01000	 Copy succeeded.
       02000	 Copy finished, job deleted.
       04000	 Job is queued.

       The format for the machine accessibility status entries is:
       system  status_time   last_success_time	 status
       where

       system is the system in question

       status_time
	      is the time the last status entry was made.

       last_success_time
	      is  the  last  time a connection was successfully made to this system.  A conversation could be ended prematurely after a successful
	      connection.

       status is a self-explanatory description of the machine status.

       In the current implementation requests are not recorded in the logging files.  This implies that mail and news requests are not recorded by

Files
       /usr/spool/uucp/ 	spool directory (top level)
       /usr/lib/uucp/L_stat	system status file
       /usr/lib/uucp/R_stat	request status file

The uustat command can display various types of status information about the UUCP system. It can also be used to cancel or rejuvenate requests made by uucp (1) or uux (1). By default uustat displays all jobs queued up for the invoking user, as if given the --user option with the appropriate argument. If any of the -a, --all, -e, --executions, -s, --system, -S, --not-system, -u, --user, -U, --not-user, -c, --command, -C, --not-command, -o, --older-than, -y, --younger-than options are given, then all jobs which match the combined specifications are displayed. The -K or --kill-all option may be used to kill off a selected group of jobs, such as all jobs more than 7 days old. OPTIONS
The following options may be given to uustat. -a, --all List all queued file transfer requests. -e, --executions List queued execution requests rather than queued file transfer requests. Queued execution requests are processed by uuxqt (8) rather than uucico (8). Queued execution requests may be waiting for some file to be transferred from a remote system. They are created by an invocation of uux (1). -s system, --system system List all jobs queued up for the named system. These options may be specified multiple times, in which case all jobs for all the sys- tems will be listed. If used with --list only the systems named will be listed. -S system, --not-system system List all jobs queued for systems other than the one named. These options may be specified multiple times, in which case no jobs from any of the specified systems will be listed. If used with --list only the systems not named will be listed. These options may not be used with -s or --system. -u user, --user user List all jobs queued up for the named user. These options may be specified multiple times, in which case all jobs for all the users will be listed. -U user, --not-user user List all jobs queued up for users other than the one named. These options may be specified multiple times, in which case no jobs from any of the specified users will be listed. These options may not be used with -u or --user. -c command, --command command List all jobs requesting the execution of the named command. If command is ALL this will list all jobs requesting the execution of some command (as opposed to simply requesting a file transfer). These options may be specified multiple times, in which case all jobs requesting any of the commands will be listed. -C command, --not-command command List all jobs requesting execution of some command other than the named command, or, if command is ALL, list all jobs that simply request a file transfer (as opposed to requesting the execution of some command). These options may be specified multiple times, in which case no job requesting one of the specified commands will be listed. These options may not be used with -c or --command. -o hours, --older-than hours List all queued jobs older than the given number of hours. If used with --list only systems whose oldest job is older than the given number of hours will be listed. -y hours, --younger-than hours List all queued jobs younger than the given number of hours. If used with --list only systems whose oldest job is younger than the given number of hours will be listed. -k jobid, --kill jobid Kill the named job. The job id is shown by the default output format, as well as by the -j or --jobid option to uucp (1) or uux (1). A job may only be killed by the user who created the job, or by the UUCP administrator or the superuser. The -k or --kill options may be used multiple times on the command line to kill several jobs. -r jobid, --rejuvenate jobid Rejuvenate the named job. This will mark it as having been invoked at the current time, affecting the output of the -o, --older-than, -y, or --younger-than options and preserving it from any automated cleanup daemon. The job id is shown by the default output format, as well as by the -j or --jobid options to uucp (1) or uux (1). A job may only be rejuvenated by the user who created the job, or by the UUCP administrator or the superuser. The -r or --rejuvenate options may be used multiple times on the command line to rejuvenate several jobs. -q, --list Display the status of commands, executions and conversations for all remote systems for which commands or executions are queued. The -s, --system, -S, --not-system, -o, --older-than, -y, and --younger-than options may be used to restrict the systems which are listed. Systems for which no commands or executions are queued will never be listed. -m, --status Display the status of conversations for all remote systems. -p, --ps Display the status of all processes holding UUCP locks on systems or ports. -i, --prompt For each listed job, prompt whether to kill the job or not. If the first character of the input line is y or Y the job will be killed. -K, --kill-all Automatically kill each listed job. This can be useful for automatic cleanup scripts, in conjunction with the --mail and --notify options. -R, --rejuvenate-all Automatically rejuvenate each listed job. This may not be used with --kill-all. -M, --mail For each listed job, send mail to the UUCP administrator. If the job is killed (due to --kill-all or --prompt with an affirmative response) the mail will indicate that. A comment specified by the --comment option may be included. If the job is an execution, the initial portion of its standard input will be included in the mail message; the number of lines to include may be set with the --mail- lines option (the default is 100). If the standard input contains null characters, it is assumed to be a binary file and is not included. -N, --notify For each listed job, send mail to the user who requested the job. The mail is identical to that sent by the -M or --mail options. -W comment, --comment comment Specify a comment to be included in mail sent with the -M, --mail, -N, or --notify options. -B lines, --mail-lines lines When the -M, --mail, -N, or --notify options are used to send mail about an execution with standard input, this option controls the number of lines of standard input to include in the message. The default is 100. -Q, --no-list Do not actually list the job, but only take any actions indicated by the -i, --prompt, -K, --kill-all, -M, --mail, -N or --notify options. -x type, --debug type Turn on particular debugging types. The following types are recognized: abnormal, chat, handshake, uucp-proto, proto, port, config, spooldir, execute, incoming, outgoing. Only abnormal, config, spooldir and execute are meaningful for uustat. Multiple types may be given, separated by commas, and the --debug option may appear multiple times. A number may also be given, which will turn on that many types from the foregoing list; for example, --debug 2 is equivalent to --debug abnormal,chat. -I file, --config file Set configuration file to use. This option may not be available, depending upon how uustat was compiled. -v, --version Report version information and exit. --help Print a help message and exit. EXAMPLES
uustat --all Display status of all jobs. A sample output line is as follows: bugsA027h bugs ian 04-01 13:50 Executing rmail ian@airs.com (sending 1283 bytes) The format is jobid system user queue-date command (size) The jobid may be passed to the --kill or --rejuvenate options. The size indicates how much data is to be transferred to the remote system, and is absent for a file receive request. The --system, --not-system, --user, --not-user, --command, --not-command, --older-than, and --younger-than options may be used to control which jobs are listed. uustat --executions Display status of queued up execution requests. A sample output line is as follows: bugs bugs!ian 05-20 12:51 rmail ian The format is system requestor queue-date command The --system, --not-system, --user, --not-user, --command, --not-command, --older-than, and --younger-than options may be used to control which requests are listed. uustat --list Display status for all systems with queued up commands. A sample output line is as follows: bugs 4C (1 hour) 0X (0 secs) 04-01 14:45 Dial failed This indicates the system, the number of queued commands, the age of the oldest queued command, the number of queued local executions, the age of the oldest queued execution, the date of the last conversation, and the status of that conversation. uustat --status Display conversation status for all remote systems. A sample output line is as follows: bugs 04-01 15:51 Conversation complete This indicates the system, the date of the last conversation, and the status of that conversation. If the last conversation failed, uustat will indicate how many attempts have been made to call the system. If the retry period is currently preventing calls to that system, uus- tat also displays the time when the next call will be permitted. uustat --ps Display the status of all processes holding UUCP locks. The output format is system dependent, as uustat simply invokes ps (1) on each process holding a lock. uustat --command rmail --older-than 168 --kill-all --no-list --mail --notify --comment "Queued for over 1 week" This will kill all rmail commands that have been queued up waiting for delivery for over 1 week (168 hours). For each such command, mail will be sent both to the UUCP administrator and to the user who requested the rmail execution. The mail message sent will include the string given by the --comment option. The --no-list option prevents any of the jobs from being listed on the terminal, so any output from the program will be error messages. SEE ALSO
