DESCRIPTION
       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-sys-
       tem, -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
	    systems  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 auto-
	    matic 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 rec-
	    ognized: abnormal, chat, handshake,	uucp-proto, proto, port,  con-
	    fig,  spooldir,  execute, incoming,	outgoing.  Only	abnormal, con-
	    fig, 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-com-
       mand, --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 out-
       put 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,	uustat
       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 pro-
       gram will be error messages.
