NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Log, .Log - Contains the uucp program log files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  /usr/spool/uucp/.Log directories contain uucp program
       log files.  The uucp program normally places status information
  about each transaction in the appropriate log file
       each time you use the networking utilities  facility.  All
       transactions of the uucico and uuxqt daemons are logged in
       files named for the remote system  concerned.   The  files
       are  stored  in a subdirectory of the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log
       directory named for the daemon involved.   Thus,  the  log
       files   are   named   with   a   form  of  the  following:

       The uucp and uuto commands call the  uucico  daemon.   The
       uucico  daemon  activities  for a particular remote system
       are   logged   in   the    SystemName    file    in    the
       /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/uucico directory on the local system.

       The uux and uusend commands call the  uuxqt  daemon.   The
       uuxqt daemon activities for a particular remote system are
       logged    in    the     SystemName     file     in     the
       /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/uuxqt  directory on the local system.

       When more than one uucp process is running,  however,  the
       system  cannot  access the standard log file, so it places
       the status information in a file with a prefix that covers
       just the single transaction.

       The  uucp  program  can automatically append the temporary
       log files to a primary log file.  This is called  compacting
  the  log  files, and is handled by the uudemon.cleanu
       command, a shell procedure, which combines the  log  files
       of  the  activities  of  the uucico and uuxqt daemons on a
       system and stores them in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Old  directory.

       The  default is for the uudemon.cleanu command to save log
       files that are 2 days old.  This default can be changed by
       modifying  the  appropriate  line in the shell script.  If
       storage space is a problem on a particular system,  reduce
       the number of days that the files are kept in the individual
 log files.

       The uulog command can be used to view the uucp program log
