       smbstatus - report on current Samba connections

       smbstatus [-P] [-b] [-d <debug level>] [-v] [-L]	[-B] [-p] [-S] [-N]
	[-f] [-s <configuration	file>] [-u <username>] [-n|--numeric]

       This tool is part of the	samba(7) suite.

       smbstatus is a very simple program to list the current Samba

	   If samba has	been compiled with the profiling option, print only
	   the contents	of the profiling shared	memory area.

	   If samba has	been compiled with the profiling option, print the
	   contents of the profiling shared memory area	and the	call rates.

	   gives brief output.

	   level is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this
	   parameter is	not specified is 0.

	   The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the	log
	   files about the activities of the server. At	level 0, only critical
	   errors and serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a reasonable
	   level for day-to-day	running	- it generates a small amount of
	   information about operations	carried	out.

	   Levels above	1 will generate	considerable amounts of	log data, and
	   should only be used when investigating a problem. Levels above 3
	   are designed	for use	only by	developers and generate	HUGE amounts
	   of log data,	most of	which is extremely cryptic.

	   Note	that specifying	this parameter here will override the log
	   level parameter in the smb.conf file.

	   Prints the program version number.

       -s|--configfile=<configuration file>
	   The file specified contains the configuration details required by
	   the server. The information in this file includes server-specific
	   information such as what printcap file to use, as well as
	   descriptions	of all the services that the server is to provide. See
	   smb.conf for	more information. The default configuration file name
	   is determined at compile time.

	   Base	directory name for log/debug files. The	extension ".progname"
	   will	be appended (e.g. log.smbclient, log.smbd, etc...). The	log
	   file	is never removed by the	client.

	   Set the smb.conf(5) option "<name>" to value	"<value>" from the
	   command line. This overrides	compiled-in defaults and options read
	   from	the configuration file.

	   gives verbose output.

	   causes smbstatus to only list locks.

	   causes smbstatus to include byte range locks.

	   print a list	of smbd(8) processes and exit. Useful for scripting.

	   causes smbstatus to only list shares.

	   causes smbstatus to display registered file notifications

	   causes smbstatus to not check if the	status data is valid by
	   checking if the processes that the status data refer	to all still
	   exist. This speeds up execution on busy systems and clusters	but
	   might display stale data of processes that died without cleaning up

	   Print a summary of command line options.

	   selects information relevant	to username only.

	   causes smbstatus to display numeric UIDs and	GIDs instead of
	   resolving them to names.

       This man	page is	part of	version	4.13.17	of the Samba suite.

       smbd(8) and smb.conf(5).

       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by
       Andrew Tridgell.	Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
