Generating Status Reports From the Command Line

Use the command acuserve -info to generate an AcuServer system status report.

Optional arguments to -info include:

Option Description
server     Specifies the name of the server machine whose status is to be reported.
-f Returns the full client name and user name, up to 170 characters. Without this option, the client and user names can contain up to only 14 characters each.
-n Identifies a particular instance of the acuserve program by port number. The "-n" must be followed by a space and then an integer, for example, "6524". If no port number is specified, status for the default port is reported.
-w Generates a wide report that includes the date and time that each file was opened and shows file names as long as 190 characters.

The default status report has the following format:

Client       User         PID     TY   FID      File Name 
----------   ----------   -----   --   ------   -------------------------- 
robin        chris        1813         <No open files for this connection> 
starling     bernie       1281    I    5d7e8    /usr2/bsmi.../dat/IDX.DAT 
starling     bernie       1281    S    5ce08    /usr2/bsmi.../dat/SUP.DAT 

2 file(s) in use by acuserve on: condor 
Port Number: 6523, AcuServer version 8.0

The File Name field displays up to 28 characters by default. To generate a report that displays file names of up to 190 characters and includes the date and time that the file was opened, use the -w option. Should the path and file name exceed 28 or 190 characters, the report will attempt to display all of the file name, preceded by the file's parent directory, preceded by the root directory. Path-name components that must be omitted are represented by an ellipsis (three dots). See the preceding example.
