TALLY.CONTROL(8)	  InterNetNews Documentation	      TALLY.CONTROL(8)

NAME
       tally.control - Keep track of newsgroup creations and deletions

SYNOPSIS
       tally.control < logfile

DESCRIPTION
       tally.control is	normally daily invoked by scanlogs.  It	reads its
       standard	input, which should be the newgroup.log	and rmgroup.log
       control log files.  They	contain	a summary line describing the control
       message and the action taken by controlchan, followed by	the article
       indented	by four	spaces,	and a blank line.  Then, tally.control updates
       the cumulative list of newsgroup	creations and deletions	which is kept
       in control.log.

       All these log files reside in the pathlog directory set in inn.conf.
       In order	to generate them, you need to enable control articles logging
       in control.ctl(5), as explained in the control.log entry	of newslog(5).

FILES
       pathbin/tally.control
	   The Shell script itself used	to tally newsgroup creations and
	   deletions up.

       pathlog/control.log
	   This	file maintains a count of the number of	newgroup and rmgroup
	   control messages seen for each newsgroup.  The count	is of the
	   number of control messages with the indicated arguments, regardless
	   if they were	actually processed.  All control arguments, including
	   invalid ones, are counted.  An example of lines which can be	found
	   in that log file is:

	       3 Control: newgroup foo.bar moderated
	       3 Control: rmgroup misc.removed
	       1 Control: newgroup misc.created
