       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(8) 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
       specified  in  the job description file; c.f.  sendq(5).  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
                 processed.  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

       -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.

       -t        Trace in  great  detail  exactly  what  faxqclean  is  doing.
                 Messages are sent to the standard output.

       -v        Print  messages  on the standard output about jobs removed or
                 archived and about document files removed.


       /var/spool/hylafax/doneq      directory to scan for completed jobs
       /var/spool/hylafax/docq       directory to scan for unreferenced documents
       /var/spool/hylafax/archive    directory where archived jobs are placed

       Consult hylafax-server(5) for a complete discussion  of  the  structure
       and content of the spooling area.
