innwatch - monitor innd.
innwatch [ -l logfile ] [ -t seconds ]
Innwatch is normally started by rc.news. It periodically — every
<innwatchsleeptime in inn.conf> 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.
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 addi-
tion, on each pass through the loop it will check the logfile <pathlog
in inn.conf>/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 <pathrun in inn.conf>/innwatch.status.
To specify a log file to watch, other than the default of
news.crit, use the ‘‘-l’’ flag.
To change the period between checks from the default from
inn.conf , use the ‘‘-t’’ flag.
