MAKEWHATIS.LOCAL(8)	FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual	   MAKEWHATIS.LOCAL(8)

NAME
     makewhatis.local -- start makewhatis for local file systems

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/libexec/makewhatis.local [options] directories ...

DESCRIPTION
     The makewhatis.local utility starts makewhatis(1) only for	file systems
     physically	mounted	on the system where makewhatis.local is	being exe-
     cuted.  Running makewhatis	by periodic weekly for rw nfs-mounted /usr may
     kill your NFS server -- all NFS clients start makewhatis at the same
     time!  So use this	wrapper	for cron(8) instead of calling makewhatis di-
     rectly.

FILES
     /etc/periodic/weekly/320.whatis	  run makewhatis.local every week

SEE ALSO
     find(1), makewhatis(1), cron(8), periodic(8)

HISTORY
     The makewhatis.local utility appeared in FreeBSD 2.2.

FreeBSD	13.0			April 26, 1996			  FreeBSD 13.0
