MAKEWHATIS.LOCAL(8)       BSD System Manager's Manual      MAKEWHATIS.LOCAL(8)

NAME
     makewhatis.local, catman.local -- start makewhatis or catman for local
     file systems

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/libexec/makewhatis.local [options] directories ...
     /usr/libexec/catman.local [options] directories ...

DESCRIPTION
     makewhatis.local start makewhatis(8) only for file systems physically
     mounted on the system where the makewhatis.local is being executed. Run-
     ning makewhatis by periodic weekly for rw nfs-mounted /usr may kill your
     NFS server -- all NFS clients start makewhatis at the same time!  So use
     this wrapper for cron(8) instead of calling makewhatis directly.
     catman.local is using for same purposes as makewhatis.local but for
     catman(1).

FILES
     /etc/periodic/weekly/320.whatis      run makewhatis.local every week
     /etc/periodic/weekly/330.catman      run catman.local every week
