      uustat - uucp status inquiry and job control

      uustat -a
      uustat -m
      uustat -p
      uustat -q
      uustat -k jobid]
      uustat -r jobid]
      uustat [-ssys] [-uuser]

      uustat displays the status of, or cancels, previously specified uucp
      commands, or provide general status on uucp connections to other
      systems (see uucp(1)).  Only one of the following options can be
      specified with uustat per command execution:

	   -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 lock files.

	   -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. or X. file for that
		     system.  The Retry field is the number of hours until
		     the next possible call.  The Count field is the number
		     of failure attempts.  Note that 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 uustat -q :

			  eagle	 3C 04/07-11:07 NO DEVICES AVAILABLE
			  mh3bs3 2C 07/07-10:42 SUCCESSFUL

		     The above output tells how many command files are
		     waiting for each system.  Each command file can have
		     zero or more files to be sent (a command file with no
		     files to be sent causes the uucp system to call the
		     remote system and see if work is waiting).	 The date
		     and time refer to the previous interaction with the
		     system followed by the status of interaction.

	   -k jobid  Kill the uucp request whose job identification is
		     jobid.  The killed uucp request must belong to the
		     person issuing the uustat command unless the command is

		     executed by the super-user.

	   -r jobid  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 cleanup daemon.

      The following options can be used singly or together but cannot be
      used with the options listed above:

	   -s sys    Report the status of all uucp requests for remote
		     system sys.

	   -u user   Report the status of all uucp requests issued by user.

	   Output for both the -s and -u options has the following format:

		eaglen0000    4/07-11:01:03    (POLL)
		eagleN1bd7    4/07-11:07       S       eagle dan 522 /usr/dan/A
		eagleC1bd8    4/07-11:07       S       eagle dan 59 D.3b2a12cd4924
			      4/07-11:07       S       eagle dan rmail mike

	   With the -s and -u options, the first field is the jobid of the
	   job.	 This is followed by the date and time.	 The next field is
	   either an S or R, depending on whether the job is to send or
	   request a file.  The next field is the destination system name.
	   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 the name of the command (such as rmail which is
	   the command used for remote mail).  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 (such as D.3b2alce4924)
	   that is created for data files associated with remote execution
	   (rmail in this example).

      When no options are given, uustat outputs the status of all uucp
      requests issued by the current user.  The format used is the same as
      with the -s or -u options.

    Environment Variables
      LC_TIME determines the format and contents of date and time strings.

      LANG determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LC_TIME is not specified in the environment or is set to the empty
      string, the value of LANG is used as a default for each unspecified or
      empty variable.  If LANG is not specified or is set to the empty
      string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used instead of LANG.  If
      any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, uustat
