NAME

  Old, .Old - Contains the combined uucp program log files

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/spool/uucp/.Old

DESCRIPTION

  The /usr/spool/uucp/.Old directory contains the combined uucp	program	log
  files.  The uucp program creates log files of	the activities of the uucico
  and uuxqt daemons in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log	directory.  The	log files are
  compacted by the /usr/lib/uucp/uudemon.cleanu	command, a shell procedure,
  which	combines the files and stores them in the .Old directory.

  By default, the uudemon.cleanu command removes log files after 2 weeks.
  The length of	time log files are kept	can be changed to suit the needs of
  an individual	system.	 The log files can be viewed using the uulog command.
