NAME

  uudemon.admin, uudemon.cleanu, uudemon.hour, uudemon.poll - Administrative
  shell	scripts	for polling remote systems, cleaning up	spool directories,
  reporting status to the system administrator,	and routine invocations	of
  the uuxqt and	uusched	daemons

SYNOPSIS

  These	shell scripts reside in	the following directory:

     /usr/lib/uucp

DESCRIPTION

  All the scripts can be run from the command line or can be run automati-
  cally	by the cron daemon. To automatically run the scripts, remove the com-
  ment character (#) from the beginning	of the relevant	line in	the
  /var/spool/cron/crontabs/uucp	file.

  uudemon.admin
	    This script	reports	status to the system administrator. It issues
	    the	uustat command to find out the status of uucp jobs. It mails
	    the	results	to the uucp login ID. The script may be	modified to
	    send mail to any login ID such as the uucp administrative login
	    ID (uucpa) or root.

  uudemon.cleanu
	    This script	cleans up the /var/spool/uucp and
	    /var/spool/uucppublic directories by running the uucleanup com-
	    mand. The uucleanup	command	is run with the	following parameters:
	    -C7, -D7, X2, -o2, -W1.

  uudemon.hour
	    This script	runs the uusched and uuxqt daemons in the background.

  uudemon.poll
	    This script	polls the systems listed in the	/usr/lib/uucp/Poll
	    file.  The uudemon.poll script should be scheduled before the
	    uudemon.hour script. This allows uudemon.poll to create any	com-
	    mand files before cron runs	the uudemon.hour script.

	    uudemon.poll files.
