ovdb_stat displays information from the ovdb database: Berkeley DB
statistics, newsgroup data, and overview records; and optionally
outputs in HTML format.

newsgroups (as stored in the ovdb "groupinfo" database) are

-H Output is presented in HTML format.
-k Displays lock region statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB
-l Displays log region statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB
-m Displays global memory pool statistics, as returned by the
Berkeley DB memp_stat() call.

-t Displays log region statistics, as returned by the Berkeley DB
-v Displays ovdb version, and Berkeley DB version.
Displays information about the given database, as returned by the
Berkeley DB db->stat() call. This operation may take a long time
on busy systems (several minutes or more).
ovdb_stat may be safely killed with the INT, TERM, or HUP signals. It
catches those signals and exits cleanly. Do not kill ovdb_stat with
other signals, unless absolutely necessary, because it may leave stale
locks in the DB environment.
