NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Status, .Status - Contains information about the status of
       the uucp program contacts with remote systems

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The /usr/spool/uucp/.Status directory contains information
       about  the status of the uucp program contacts with remote

       For each remote system contacted, the uucp program creates
       a  file in the directory called SystemName, where the SystemName
 file is named for the  remote  system  being  contacted.
   In the file, the uucp program stores the following
 information: Time of the last call in  seconds  Status
       of the last call Number of retries Retry time, in seconds,
       of the next call

       The times given in  the  file  are  expressed  as  seconds
       elapsed since midnight of January 1, 1970 (the output of a
       time system call).  Thus, the retry time is in the form of
       the  number  of  seconds that must have expired since midnight
 of January 1, 1970 before the system can retry.   To
       make  this  entry in the file, uucp performs a time system
       call, adds 600 seconds, and places the resulting number of
       seconds  in  the file.  If the last call was unsuccessful,
       the uucico daemon will wait until the  time  specified  by
       the  retry  time  before  attempting to contact the system
