faxqclean - HylaFAX queue cleaner process
/usr/sbin/faxqclean [ options ]
faxqclean is a program that processes completed HylaFAX jobs and
expunges unreferenced document files. This program is intended to be
invoked by cron(8C) on behalf of the super user (i.e. root) one or more
times a day. For example, the following crontab entry might be setup
for root to run faxqclean each hour.
0 * * * * /usr/sbin/faxqclean
When faxqclean is run it scans the doneq subdirectory in the HylaFAX
spooling area and process each job according to the doneop field speci‐
fied in the job description file; c.f. sendq(5F). Jobs that are
marked for removal are purged and references to documents are removed.
Jobs that are marked for archival may be archived depending on the
options supplied on the command line.
After scanning for completed jobs faxqclean scans the docq subdirectory
and builds up a table of document files. Files that are not referenced
by any job and that are older than a specified threshold are removed.
-a Enable job archiving support.
-A This option forces archiving even if 'doneop' in the queue
file is not 'archive', i.e. even if the user submitted the
job without specifying the -A flag to sendfax
-j secs Set the job age threshold (in seconds) that controls how long
jobs may reside in the doneq directory before being pro‐
cessed. By default this value is 15 minutes (15*60 = 900
-d secs Set the document age threshold (in seconds) that controls how
long unreferenced files may reside in the docq directory
before being removed. By default this value is 1 hour (60*60
= 3600 seconds).
-n Do not carry out any work; just show what would be done.
This option is useful together with the -t option for debug‐
-q dir The specified directory is treated as the spooling area. The
default spooling area, /var/spool/hylafax, is defined at the
time the software is built.
-s script Specifies a custom program to be used for archiving. This is
given relative to the spooling area, /var/spool/hylafax. The
default program is bin/archive found in the spooling area.
-t Trace in great detail exactly what faxqclean is doing. Mes‐
sages are sent to the standard output.
-v Print messages on the standard output about jobs removed or
archived and about document files removed.
