SMBSTATUS(1)                                                      SMBSTATUS(1)


       smbstatus - report on current Samba connections


       smbstatus [-P] [-b] [-d <debug level>] [-v] [-L] [-B] [-p] [-S]
                 [-s <configuration file>] [-u <username>]


       This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

       smbstatus is a very simple program to list the  current  Samba  connec-


              If samba has been compiled with the profiling option, print only
              the contents of the profiling shared memory area.

              gives brief output.

       -V     Prints the program version number.

       -s <configuration file>
              The file specified contains the configuration  details  required
              by the server. The information in this file includes server-spe-
              cific information such as what printcap file to use, as well  as
              descriptions  of all the services that the server is to provide.
              See smb.conf for more  information.  The  default  configuration
              file name is determined at compile time.

              debuglevel is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this
              parameter is not specified is zero.

              The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the log
              files about the activities of the server. At level 0, only crit-
              ical errors and serious warnings will be logged. Level  1  is  a
              reasonable  level  for day-to-day running - it generates a small
              amount of information about operations carried out.

              Levels above 1 will generate considerable amounts of  log  data,
              and  should  only  be  used when investigating a problem. Levels
              above 3 are designed for use only  by  developers  and  generate
              HUGE amounts of log data, most of which is extremely cryptic.

              Note  that specifying this parameter here will override the  pa-
              rameter in the smb.conf file.

              Base directory name for log/debug files. The  extension  ".prog-
              name"  will  be appended (e.g. log.smbclient, log.smbd, etc...).
              The log file is never removed by the client.

              gives verbose output.

              causes smbstatus to only list locks.

              causes smbstatus to include byte range locks.

              print a list of smbd(8) processes and exit. Useful  for  script-

              causes smbstatus to only list shares.

              Print a summary of command line options.

              selects information relevant to username only.

       The  original  Samba software and related utilities were created by An-
       drew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the  Samba  Team  as  an  Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

       The  original  Samba  man pages were written by Karl Auer. The man page
       sources were converted to YODL format (another excellent piece of  Open
       Source  software, available at and up-
       dated for the Samba 2.0 release by Jeremy Allison.  The  conversion  to
       DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter. The conversion to Doc-
       Book XML 4.2 for Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander Bokovoy.
