     SPOOLSERV(1M)  FullPress by Xinet (10/14/99 10.1)	 SPOOLSERV(1M)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  spoolserv - a	print queue information	daemon

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  spoolserv [ -D ] [ -d	lev ] [	-a ] [ -u user ] [ -g group ]
		[ -m archdir ] [ -f freq ] [ -k	days ]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  spoolserv responds to	queries	via its	own protocol used to
	  monitor and manipulate print queues.	Currently the only
	  client application is	"Queue Master" for the Macintosh.
	  This client allows users to check on jobs and	move jobs
	  between print	queues,	and remove jobs.

	  The -a -u and	-g options control administrator access.
	  Administrator	access allows users to manipulate jobs that
	  they did not queue, as well as start and stop	the queues.
	  If the -a option is given, all users have administrator
	  access.  If the -u option is given, the specified user can
	  become administrator.	 With -g all members of	the specified
	  group	can become administrator.  With	-u and -g the user is
	  required to type their password on the Mac to	gain access.
	  Typing the root password will	always work.  These options
	  can be manipulated from the xktalk GUI.

	  Another task spoolserv handles is archiving printer
	  accounting files.  Without both the -m and -f	options, it
	  does nothing to printer accounting files.  With those	two
	  options, the accounting files	for all	printers with
	  accounting enabled are merged	and copied to archdir either
	  daily, weekly	or monthly, given freq values of 1, 2 or 3,
	  respectively.	 The printer accounting	files are truncated
	  after	being copied.  The -k option gives the number of days
	  that the merged accounting files should be kept.  The
	  default for days is 62.  Archive files older than the	given
	  day limit are	removed.

	  If the -D option is used, spoolserv stays in the foreground
	  and prints debugging information about activity.  With -d,
	  the user can control which messages are printed.
