NEWSLOG(8)							    NEWSLOG(8)

       newslog - maintenance of Usenet log files

       scanlogs [ norotate ] [ nonn ]

       writelog name text...





       Scanlogs	 summarizes the information recorded in the INN log files (see
       newslog(5)).  By default, it also rotates and cleans out the logs.   It
       is normally invoked by the news.daily(8) script.

       The following keywords are accepted:

	      Using  this keyword disables the rotating and cleaning aspect of
	      the log processing: the logs files are only scanned for informa‐
	      tion and no contents are altered.

       nonn   Normally	the  nn	 log  file is scanned and rotated.  Using this
	      keyword disables this function.

       If scanlogs is invoked more than once a day, the	 ``norotate''  keyword
       should be used to prevent premature log cleaning.

       The  writelog  script  is used to write a log entry or send it as mail.
       The name parameter specifies the name of the log file where  the	 entry
       should be written.  If it is the word ``mail'' then the entry is mailed
       to the news administrator, usenet .  The data that is written  or  sent
       consists	 of  the  text given on the command line, followed by standard
       input indented by four spaces.  Shlock(1) is used to avoid simultaneous
       updates to a single log file.

       The  innstat  script  prints a snapshot of the INN system.  It displays
       the operating mode of the server, as well as disk usage and the	status
       of all log and lock files.

       The  rest  of  the scripts described here are normally invoked by scan‐
       logs.  They parse log files that are described in newslog(5),  and  the
       server's article log file described in innd(8).

       Tally.unwanted script parses the article log file to update the cumula‐
       tive list of articles posted to unwanted newsgroups, unwanted.log.

       Tally.control reads its	standard  input,  which	 should	 be  the  new‐
       group.log and rmgroup.log log files.  It updates the cumulative list of
       newsgroup creations and deletions, control.log.

       Innlog.awk is an awk(1) script that summarizes the activity  that  innd
       and nnrpd(8) report to syslog.
