faxq - display fax jobs queued by faxspool(1)
faxq [<command>] [-osa] [-v] [-r]
Display the fax queue set up by faxspool(1).
faxq looks for all the jobs queued by faxspool(1) to
/var/spool/fax/outgoing/*. For each job in the queue, faxq displays
some status informations about it. If no options are specified, one line per
queued fax job is printed, displaying the job number, sender, number of
pages and target fax number.
faxq stop stops the fax queue processing by creating the file
/var/spool/fax/outgoing/stop. This command works only if you have write access
to the spool directory. Depending on local setup, this means ``root only'' or
``fax administrator group''. If you don't have write access, an error message
faxq start re-starts a previously stopped fax queue, by
removing the ``stop'' file. As for faxq stop this only works if you
have write access.
faxq doesn't handle time scheduling yet.

- Show old jobs, already sent but still in the queue directory, too.
- Show suspended jobs (stopped because of too many fatal errors during
sending). You can restart those jobs with faxq -r
- Show all jobs (active, old, suspended).
- Restart suspended jobs. Every suspended job in the queue (that you have
write permissions for) will be requeued. Use faxrm to delete jobs
that you do not want to be sent!
- -P <job> <prio>
- Change the priority of fax job <job> to <prio>. Example:
"faxq -P F000247 3".
faxq -P is currently broken (needs re-implementing with
faxrunq(1), faxspool(1), faxrm(1), faxqueue(5)
