 NAME
      nisstat - report NIS+ server statistics

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/lib/nis/nisstat [ -H host ] [ directory ]

 DESCRIPTION
      The nisstat command queries a NIS+ server for various statistics about
      its operations.  These statistics may vary between implementations and
      from release to release.	Not all statistics are available from all
      servers. Requesting a statistic from a server that does not support
      that statistic is never fatal, it simply returns 'unknown statistic.'

      By default, statistics are fetched from the server(s) of the NIS+
      directory for the default domain.	 If directory is specified, servers
      for that directory are queried.

      Supported statistics for this release are as follows:

      root server	This reports whether the server is a root server.

      NIS compat mode	This reports whether the server is running in NIS
			compat mode.

      DNS forwarding in NIS mode
			This reports whether the server in NIS compat mode
			will forward host lookup calls to DNS.

      security level	This reports the security level of this server.

      serves directories
			This lists the directories served by this server.

      Operations	This statistic returns results in the form:

			OP=opname:C=calls:E=errors:T=micros

			Where opname is replaced by the RPC procedure name
			or operation, calls is the number of calls to this
			procedure that have been made since the server
			started running.  errors is the number of errors
			that have occurred while processing a call, and
			micros is the average time in microseconds to
			complete the last 16 calls.

      Directory Cache	This statistic reports the number of calls to the
			internal directory object cache, the number of hits
			on that cache, the number of misses, and the hit
			rate percentage.

      Group Cache	This statistic reports the number of calls to the
			internal NIS+ group object cache, the number of hits
			on that cache, the number of misses, and the hit
			rate percentage.

      Static Storage	This statistic reports the number of bytes the
			server has allocated for its static storage buffers.

      Dynamic Storage	This statistic reports the amount of heap the server
			process is currently using.

      Uptime		This statistic reports the time since the service
			has been running.

    Options
      -H host	     Normally all servers for the directory are queried.
		     With this option, only the machine named host is
		     queried.  If the named machine does not serve the
		     directory, no statistics are returned.

      directory	     If specified, servers for that directory are queried.

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    Environment Variables
      NIS_PATH		If this variable is set, and the NIS+ directory name
			is not fully qualified, each directory specified
			will be searched until the directory is found (see
			nisdefaults(1)).
