DCLEAN(8)                   System Manager's Manual                  DCLEAN(8)



NAME
       dclean - Diablo program to clean out stale spool files

SYNOPSIS
       dclean [ -q ] [ -q2 ] [ -v ] [ -r ] [ spool-directory ]


DESCRIPTION
       Dclean

       NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE -- DCLEAN HAS BEEN DEPRECIATED AND IS AN EMPTY
       SHELL NOW

       scans all spool directories by default, or the specific spool directory
       you name, and prints and/or removes any diablo spool file that is
       either marked expired in the dhistory database, or does not exist at
       all in the dhistory database.  DClean should nominally be run once a
       day to keep your spool sparkling, but you can get away with running it
       once a week if you do not have the cpu cycles.  In a properly running
       system, DClean should not find any files to remove.  DClean will tend
       to find files after, say, a crash, or an unclean shutdown.

       -r Tell dclean to remove files.  Otherwise it just prints out the files
       it finds.

       -v

       This option undos the -q option.  -q DClean normally prints out every
       file it determines should be removed.  This option surpresses this.

       -q2 DClean normally reports the number of files removed at the end of
       its run.  This prevents any verbose printing or end-run reporting from
       occuring.


       DClean may be run concurrent to the diablo server or with other
       dclean's.  Since it does not need to actually open any of the files it
       scans, it is reasonably efficient.  However, a typical news server
       taking a full feed may have several million article files and it is not
       suggested that you run DClean more often then once a day... and less
       often if you do not have the cycles to spare for it.
