Display information from the ovdb database

Synopsis

ovdb_stat [-Hgci] [-r artnumrange] newsgroup [newsgroup ...]

ovdb_stat -HklmMtv [-d database]

Description

ovdb_stat displays information from the ovdb database:  Berkeley DB statistics, newsgroup data, and overview records.  The output can optionally be in HTML format.

Options

-g

Newsgroup high water mark, low marker mark, article count, and flag for the given newsgroups (as stored in the ovdb groupinfo database) are displayed.

-c

Similar to -g, except the high water mark, low water mark, and article count are calculated by actually scanning the overview records and counting them.  This can be a lengthy operation on groups with lots of articles.

-i

Internal data regarding the given newsgroups are displayed.

-r artnumrange

Overview records are retrieved.  The artnumrange parameter may be a single article number, or a range of articles in the format low-high.

-H

Output is presented in HTML format.

-k

Displays lock region statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB lock_stat() call.

-l

Displays log region statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB log_stat() call.

-m

Displays global memory pool statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB memp_stat() call.

-M

Same as -m, and also displays memory pool statistics for each database file.

-t

Displays log region statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB txn_stat() call.

-v

Displays ovdb version, and Berkeley DB version.

-d database

Displays information about the given database, as returned by the Berkeley DB db->stat() call.  This operation may take a long time on busy systems (several minutes or more).

Warnings

ovdb_stat may be safely killed with the INT, TERM, or HUP signals. It catches those signals and exits cleanly. Do not kill ovdb_stat with other signals, unless absolutely necessary, because it may leave stale locks in the database environment.
