NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       exiwhat - programs to query what running exim processes are doing

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  shell  script  called  exiwhat first of all empties the processlog
       file in Exim's log directory. It then uses the ps command to  find  all
       processes  running  exim,  and  sends each one the SIGUSR1 signal. This
       causes each process to write  a	single	line  describing  its  current
       activity  to  the  processlog file. The script waits a bit, then copies
       the file to the standard output.

	 164 0.53 daemon: -q1h, listening on port 25
       10483 0.54 running queue: waiting for 0tAycK-0002ij-00 (10492)
       10492 0.54 delivering 0tAycK-0002ij-00 to mail.ref.book []
       10592 0.53 handling incoming call from []
       10628 0.54 accepting a local non-SMTP message

       The first number in the output line is the process number;  the	second
       is  the	Exim  version  number.	The third line has been split here, in
       order to fit it on the page. Because Exim processes run under a variety
       of  uids, it is necessary to run exiwhat as root in order to be able to
       send the signal to all Exim processes.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

       There is extensive documentation available in  /usr/share/doc/exim  and
       in the info system regarding exim.  Please be sure to have the exim-doc
       package installed.
