uustat - uucp status inquiry and job control
uustat [ -kjobid ]
uustat [ -rjobid ]
uustat [ -ssystem ] [ -uuser ]
uustat will display the status of, or cancel, previously specified uucp
commands, or provide general status on uucp connections to other systems.
Only one of the following options can be specified with uustat per
-a Output all jobs in queue.
-m Report the status of accessibility of all machines.
-p Execute a ``ps -flp'' for all the process-ids that are in the
-q List the jobs queued for each machine. If a status file exists
for the machine, its date, time and status information are
reported. In addition, if a number appears in () next to the
number of C or X files, it is the age in days of the oldest
C./X. file for that system. The Retry field represents the
number of hours until the next possible call. The Count is the
number of failure attempts. NOTE: for systems with a moderate
number of outstanding jobs, this could take 30 seconds or more
of real-time to execute. As an example of the output produced
by the -q option:
eagle 3C 04/07-11:07NO DEVICES AVAILABLE
mh3bs3 2C 07/07-10:42SUCCESSFUL
The above output tells how many command files are waiting for each
system. Each command file may have zero or more files to be sent (zero
means to call the system and see if work is to be done). The date and
time refer to the previous interaction with the system followed by the
status of the interaction.
-kjobid Kill the uucp request whose job identification is jobid. The
killed uucp request must belong to the person issuing the
uustat command unless one is the super-user.
-rjobid Rejuvenate jobid. The files associated with jobid are touched
so that their modification time is set to the current time.
This prevents the cleanup daemon from deleting the job until
the jobs modification time reaches the limit imposed by the
Either or both of the following options can be specified with uustat:
-ssys Report the status of all uucp requests for remote system sys.
-uuser Report the status of all uucp requests issued by user.
Output for both the -s and -u options has the following format:
eagleN1bd7 4/07-11:07Seagledan522 /usr/dan/A
eagleC1bd8 4/07-11:07Seagledan59 D.3b2al2ce4924
With the above two options, the first field is the jobid of the job.
This is followed by the date/time. The next field is either an 'S' or
'R' depending on whether the job is to send or request a file. This is
followed by the user-id of the user who queued the job. The next field
contains the size of the file, or in the case of a remote execution (
rmail - the command used for remote mail), the name of the command. When
the size appears in this field, the file name is also given. This can
either be the name given by the user or an internal name (e.g.,
D.3b2alce4924) that is created for data files associated with remote
executions (rmail in this example).
When no options are given, uustat outputs the status of all uucp requests
issued by the current user.
