uustat - uucp status inquiry and job control
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
Hewlett-Packard Company - 1 - HP-UX Release 11i: November 2000
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
-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.
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

behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to "C". See
