       exiqsumm - Summarising the queue


       exiqsumm [-a] [-c]


       The  exiqsumm  utility  is a Perl script which reads the output of exim
       -bp and produces a summary of the messages on the queue.  Thus, you use
       it by running a command such as

         exim -bp | exiqsumm

       The  output  consists  of  one  line  for each domain that has messages
       waiting for it, as in the following example:

           3   2322   74m   66m

       This lists the number of messages for the domain, their  total  volume,
       and  the  length  of  time that the oldest and the newest messages have
       been waiting.  By default the output is sorted on the domain name,  but
       exiqsumm has the options -a and -c, which cause the output to be sorted
       by oldest message and by count of messages, respectively.

       The output of exim -bp contains the original addresses in the  message,
       so  this  also  applies  to  the output from exiqsumm.  No domains from
       addresses generated by aliasing or forwarding are included (unless  the
       "one_time"  option of the redirect router has been used to convert them
       into 'top level' addresses).


       This manual page needs a major re-work. If somebody knows better  groff
       than  us  and  has more experience in writing manual pages, any patches
       would be greatly appreciated.
