 NAME
      nislog - display the contents of the NIS+ transaction log

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/nislog [ -h num | -t num ] [ -v ] [ directory...  ]

 DESCRIPTION
      nislog displays the contents of the NIS+ server transaction log on the
      standard output.	This command can be used to track changes in the
      namespace.  The /var/nis/hostname.log file contains the transaction
      log maintained by the NIS+ server.  hostname is the string returned by
      uname -n.	 When updates occur, they are logged to this file and then
      propagated to replicas as log transactions.  When the log is
      checkpointed, updates that have been propagated to the replicas are
      removed.

      The nislog command can only be run on an NIS+ server by superuser.  It
      displays the log entries for that server only.

      If directory is not specified, the entire log is searched.  Otherwise,
      only those log entries that correspond to the specified directories
      are displayed.

    Options
      -h [num]	  Display num transactions from the ``head'' of the log.  If
		  the numeric parameter is omitted, it is assumed to be 1.
		  If the numeric parameter is 0, only the log header is
		  displayed.

      -t [num]	  Display num transactions from the ``tail'' of the log.  If
		  the numeric parameter is omitted, it is assumed to be 1.
		  If the numeric parameter is 0, only the log header is
		  displayed.

      -v	  Verbose mode.

 FILES
      /var/nis/hostname.log    transaction log
