NAME
       innwatch	- Monitor the state of INN and the system

SYNOPSIS
       innwatch	[-f ctlfile] [-i seconds] [-l logfile] [-t seconds]

DESCRIPTION
       innwatch	is normally started by rc.news.	 Every innwatchsleeptime
       seconds,	as set in inn.conf, it examines	the load average, and the
       number of free blocks and inodes	on the spool partition,	as described
       by its control file, innwatch.ctl in pathetc.

       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/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 innwatch.status in pathrun.

OPTIONS
       -f file
	   Specify the control file to use, other than the default of
	   innwatch.ctl	in pathetc.

       -i seconds
	   With	this option, innwatch has an initial sleep of seconds seconds
	   at startup.	This is	useful when innwatch is	started	at the same
	   time	as INN,	so that	it can wait a little before beginning
	   performing its checks.

       -l logfile
	   Specify a log file to watch,	other than the default of news.crit.

       -t seconds
	   Specify the period in seconds between checks, to override the value
	   set in inn.conf.
