cnfsstat: Show usage of CNFS buffers


cnfsstat - Show usage of CNFS buffers


cnfsstat [-ahpPsv] [-c class] [-i seconds] [-l [seconds]] [-m buffer]


cnfsstat reads pathetc/cycbuff.conf and pathetc/storage.conf to determine which CNFS buffers are available. It then reads the specified cyclic buffers and shows their usage status. cnfsstat can be invoked from if docnfsstat is set to true in inn.conf, and the result is written to syslog(3).


Besides its usual output, cnfsstat prints the age of the oldest article in the cycbuff. You may also want to use the -v flag to see extended consistency checks.
-c class
Only information for the specified class is printed.
Print usage information and exit.
-i seconds
With this option, cnfsstat has an initial sleep of seconds seconds at startup. This is useful when cnfsstat is started at the same time as INN, so that it can wait a little before beginning performing its checks.
-l [seconds]
With this option, cnfsstat prints a status snapshot every seconds seconds, and only exits if an error occurs. When unspecified, the default interval is 600 seconds.

At each iteration, cnfsstat checks whether the cycbuff.conf and storage.conf files have been modified, and loads the new configuration if needed.

-m buffer
Print information about the specified buffer in a format suitable for MRTG.
Print an MRTG config file.
Write PID into pathrun/
Write output to syslog(3) instead of standard output.
Write additional information, especially about consistency checks for article storage and the history file.
