innwatch - monitor innd.


   innwatch [ -l logfile ] [ -t seconds ]


   Innwatch  is  normally  started  by  /etc/news/boot.  It periodically ---
   every (600) seconds --- examines the load average, and the number of free
   blocks  and  inodes on the spool partition, as described by its control
   file, innwatch.ctl(5).

   If the load gets too high, or the disk gets too full, it throttles  the
   server.   When  the  condition  restores,  it  unblocks the server.  In
   addition, on each pass through the  loop  it  will  check  the  logfile
   /var/log/news/news.crit  to  see if it has been modified, and send mail
   to the news administrator if so.

   Upon receipt of an interrupt signal (SIGINT), innwatch will report  its
   status in the file /run/innd/innwatch.status.


   -l     To  specify  a  log  file  to  watch,  other than the default of
          news.crit, use the ``-l'' flag.

   -t     To change the period between check from  the  default,  use  the
          ``-t'' flag.
