NAME

tally.control - Keep track of newsgroup creations and deletions

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

tally.control < logfile

DESCRIPTION

tally.control is normally daily invoked by scanlogs. It reads its standard input, which should be the newgroup.log and rmgroup.log control log files. They contain a summary line describing the control message and the action taken by controlchan, followed by the article indented by four spaces, and a blank line. Then, tally.control updates the cumulative list of newsgroup creations and deletions which is kept in control.log.

All these log files reside in the pathlog directory set in inn.conf. In order to generate them, you need to enable control articles logging in control.ctl(5), as explained in the control.log entry of newslog(5).

FILES

pathbin/tally.control The Shell script itself used to tally newsgroup creations and deletions up.
pathlog/control.log This file maintains a count of the number of newgroup and rmgroup control messages seen for each newsgroup. The count is of the number of control messages with the indicated arguments, regardless if they were actually processed. All control arguments, including invalid ones, are counted. An example of lines which can be found in that log file is:



    3 Control: newgroup foo.bar moderated
    3 Control: rmgroup misc.removed
    1 Control: newgroup misc.created
