faxstat — display HylaFAX status

Synopsis

faxstat [ -O config ] [ options ]

Description

faxstat reports the status of HylaFAX servers, including (potentially) the status of the send, receive, done, document, and archive directories. When invoked without options faxstat reports only the status of the server; the options described below can be used to override this behavior.

Server status information indicates the state of the server (idle, sending, receiving, etc.) and the phone number that is associated with the fax modem.

The job queue report give the status of facsimile jobs queued for transmission; by default:

The receive queue report lists the facsimile documents that have been received and are awaiting delivery; by default it includes:

Options

-A

Login with administrative privileges.

-a

Display the contents of the archive directory on the server machine

-d

Display the status of all jobs that have completed; i.e. those jobs located in the doneq directory on the server machine. The JobFmt string defines the content and format of information reported with this option.

-f

Display the status of document files located in the docq directory on the server machine. The FileFmt string defines the content and format of information reported with this option (see below).

-g

Display times and dates in  Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). NB: this is the default.

-h host

Report the status of the server on a specific host. The host may be either a symbolic name or a network address. IPv6 addresses are given in “[xx:xx::x]:port” format. If no -h option is supplied, faxstat uses the FAXSERVER environment variable to identify the HylaFAX server to contact. If this variable is not set, then faxstat checks for a setting in the configuration files (first in the per-user file and then in the system-wide file). If all of the above fails, then faxstat attempts to contact a server on the machine where it is run.

-i

Display additional status information for the server as given by /var/spool/hylafax/status/any.info. This status typically has information such as the HylaFAX version, the physical location of the server machine, and an administrative contact for the server.  See status(5F).

-l

Display times and dates in the local timezone of the server.

-n

Supress the display of server and modem status.

-o login

Specify the fax owner login name.  If unspecified, the user's current login name is used.  The login password and admin password may also be provided by separating them from the owner login name with colons, like “owner:pass:adminpass”.

-q

Display the sequence numbers of the HylaFAX queues.

-r

Display the receive queue status for each server. The RcvFmt string defines the content and format of information reported with this option (see below).

-O config

Treat config as a configuration parameter specification that is interpreted after reading the configuration file. For example, “-O Host:fax.example.com” would set the Host configuration parameter to “fax.example.com”, overriding any setting in the configuration file.

-s

Display the status of jobs in the send queue on the server machine. The JobFmt string defines the content and format of information reported with this option (see below).

-v

Trace the protocol exchanges between faxstat and the hfaxd processes on the standard output.

Configuration Parameters

faxstat reads configuration information from the file /etc/hylafax/hyla.conf and then from the file ~/.hylarc. Configuration files follow the conventions described in hylafax-client(1). The following configuration parameters are recognized:

Tag Type Default Description
FileFmt string see below format string for file status results
Host string localhost host to contact for service
JobFmt string see below format string for job status results
ModemFmt string see below format string for modem status results
PassiveMode boolean false whether or not to use passive mode
Port integer 4559 port to use in contacting server
Protocol string tcp protocol to use in contacting server
RcvFmt string see below format string for received facsimile status results
TimeZone string GMT timezone to use for reporting dates and times
Verbose boolean No whether or not to enable protocol tracing

The configuration parameters are explained below:

FileFmt

The format string to use when returning file status information with the -f option. Formats are specified using printf(3S)-style conventions but using the field identifiers listed below. Each item can include field width, precision, left-justification, 0-filling, etc. just as for printf; e.g. %-8p for an 8-character wide, left-justified, blank-padded field containing the file protection flags.

Format Description
a Last access time
c Creation time
d Device number (octal)
f Filename
g Group identifier (decimal)

s File size in bytes (decimal)
u User identifier (decimal)
Host

The host to contact for service. (Equivalent to the -h option.)

JobFmt

The format string to use when returning job status information for the -s and -d options. Formats are specified using printf(3S)-style conventions but using the field identifiers listed below. Each item can include field width, precision, left-justification, 0-filling, etc. just as for printf; e.g. %-3j for a 3-character wide, left-justified, blank-padded field containing the job state.

The K format produces: “D” if ECM is to be disabled, “ ” (space) if ECM use is enabled, “H” if T.30 Annex C half duplex is enabled, or “F” if T.30 Annex C full duplex is enabled.

The N format produces: “ ” (space) if the system-wide tagline format is to be used or “P” if a private tagline format is to be used.

The O format produces: “N” if no continuation cover page is to be used or “ ” (space) if the system default handling for continuation cover pages is to be used.

The X format produces: “F” for a facsimile job or “P” for a pager job.

The a format produces: “?” for a job in an undefined state, “T” for a suspended job (not being scheduled), “P” for a pending job (waiting for its time to send to arrive), “S” for a sleeping job (waiting for a scheduled timeout such as a delay between attempts to send), “B” for a job blocked by concurrent activity to the same destination, “W” for a job waiting for resources such as a free modem, “R” for a job that is actively running, and “D” for a job that is done and was a success. “F” for a job that failed to complete.

The h format produces: “D” if page chopping is disabled, “ ” (space) for the system default page chop handling, “A” when all pages are to be chopped, or “L” if only the last page is to be chopped.

The n format produces: “ ” (space) when no notification messages are to be delivered, “D” when notification is to be sent when the job is done, “Q” when notification is to be sent each time the job is requeued, or “A” when notification is to be sent for either the job completing or being requeued.

It is recommended that all items include a field width so that the width of column title strings can be constrained when constructing headers from the format string.

ModemFmt

The format string to use when returning modem status information. Formats are specified using printf(3S)-style conventions but using the field identifiers listed below. Each item can include field width, precision, left-justification, 0-filling, etc. just as for printf; e.g. %-8h for an 8-character wide, left-justified, blank-padded field containing the name of the host the server is running on.

Format Description
h Server hostname
l Local identifier string
m Canonical modem name
n FAX phone number
r Maximum pages that can be received in a single call
s Status information string
t Server and session tracing levels (xxxxx:yyyyy)
v Modem speaker volume as one-character symbol
z A “*” if a faxgetty(8C) process is running; otherwise “ ” (space)
PassiveMode

Whether or not to use passive mode in communication with the server.

Port

The network port to contact for service. (Equivalent to the -h option.)

Protocol

The name of the communication protocol to use when contacting a server. (Equivalent to the FAXSERVICE environment variable.)

RcvFmt

The format string to use when returning status information for the -r option. Formats are specified using printf(3S)-style conventions but using the field identifiers listed below. Each item can include field width, precision, left-justification, 0-filling, etc. just as for printf; e.g. %-3b for a 3-character wide, left-justified, blank-padded field containing the signalling rate.

Format Description
Y Extended representation of the time when the receive happened
a SubAddress received from sender (if any)
b Signalling rate used during receive

j CIDNumber value for received fax
l Page length in mm
m Fax-style protection mode string (“-rwxrwx”)
n File size (number of bytes)
o File owner
p Number of pages in document
q UNIX-style protection flags
r Resolution of received data
s Sender identity (TSI)
t Compact representation of the time when the receive happened
w Page width in mm
z A “*” if receive is going on; otherwise “ ” (space)

It is recommended that all items include a field width so that the width of column title strings can be constrained when constructing headers from the format string.

TimeZone

Control whether times and dates are reported in the local timezone of the server (“local”) or in GMT (“gmt”). By default times are reported in GMT.

Verbose

Control protocol tracing. (Equivalent to the -v option.)

Notes

The server login user name may be specified by the FAXUSER environment variable.

Bugs

There is no way to suppress the server status report. There is no way to control the printing of headers.
