NAME

  Log, .Log - Contains the uucp	program	log files

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/spool/uucp/.Log

DESCRIPTION

  The /usr/spool/uucp/.Log directories contain uucp program log	files.	The
  uucp program normally	places status information about	each transaction in
  the appropriate log file each	time you use the networking utilities facil-
  ity.	All transactions of the	uucico and uuxqt daemons are logged in files
  named	for the	remote system concerned.  The files are	stored in a subdirec-
  tory of the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log directory named for the daemon involved.
  Thus,	the log	files are named	with a form of the following:

       /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/DaemonName/SystemName

  The uucp and uuto commands call the uucico daemon.  The uucico daemon
  activities for a particular remote system are	logged in the SystemName file
  in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/uucico directory on the local system.

  The uux and uusend commands call the uuxqt daemon.  The uuxqt	daemon
  activities for a particular remote system are	logged in the SystemName file
  in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/uuxqt directory on the local system.

  When more than one uucp process is running, however, the system cannot
  access the standard log file,	so it places the status	information in a file
  with a .Log prefix that covers just the single transaction.

  The uucp program can automatically append the	temporary log files to a pri-
  mary log file.  This is called compacting the	log files, and is handled by
  the uudemon.cleanu command, a	shell procedure, which combines	the log	files
  of the activities of the uucico and uuxqt daemons on a system	and stores
  them in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Old directory.

  The default is for the uudemon.cleanu	command	to save	log files that are 2
  days old.  This default can be changed by modifying the appropriate line in
  the shell script.  If	storage	space is a problem on a	particular system,
  reduce the number of days that the files are kept in the individual log
  files.

  The uulog command can	be used	to view	the uucp program log files.
