       faxwatch - monitor low-level HylaFAX server actions


       /usr/sbin/faxwatch [ -g ] [ -l ] [ -h host ] trigger-expression


       faxwatch  registers  interest in one or more events on a HylaFAX server
       and then prints subsequent event messages to the standard output.   The
       faxwatch  program is intended mainly for testing the event distribution
       mechanism used by the HylaFAX servers.

       The trigger-expression is supplied as an argument to a ``SITE TRIGGER''
       command passed to the hfaxd(8) The syntax for this expression is:


       where <class> defines a class of events and is one of:

       J      for job-related events,

       S      for fax send-related events,

       R      for fax receive-related events, and

       M      for modem-related events.

       A <mask> is a 4-hex-digit mask of trigger events (see the table below).
       If ``*'' is specified then all events in the class are matched.

       An <id> can be used to restrict matches to a  specific  job  or  modem.
       Eventually this will need to be generalized for job groups.

       Thus  an example specification that would catch any event for the modem
       on ttyf2 would be ``M<ttyf2>*'', and to be notified when  job  1932  is
       requeued or completes one would use ``J<1932>4c60''.

       The  output  from  faxwatch  is  ASCII  text that describes each event.
       faxwatch runs until it is interrupted.


       -g        Display times and dates in Greenwich Mean  Time  (GMT).   NB:
                 this is the default.

       -h host   Report the status of the server on a specific host.  The host
                 may be either a symbolic name or a network address.  If no -h
                 option  is  supplied, faxwatch uses the FAXSERVER environment
                 variable to identify the HylaFAX server to contact.  If  this
                 variable  is  not  set, then faxwatch checks for a setting in
                 the configuration files (first in the per-user file and  then
                 in  the  system-wide  file).  If all of the above fails, then
                 faxwatch attempts to contact a server on the machine where it
                 is run.

       -l        Display  times and dates in the local timezone of the server.

       -v        Trace the protocol exchanges between faxwatch and  the  hfaxd
                 processes on the standard output.
