NAME
       make_md5 - Generate MD5 checksums for given set of users.

SYNOPSIS
       make_md5 [ -C config-file ] [ -D md5_dir ] [ -k count ] [ -f input_file
       ] [ -m offset ] [ -M modulo ] [ -v ] [ userid...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       Generate MD5 checksums for messages given set of users. Works as
       incremental update: reads in existing set of md5 checksums from
       md5_dir/u/userid (hashed on first letter of userid) if that file
       exists. Scans account looking for new messages, and then updates
       record.

       The MD5 checksums which are generated are used to test integrity of the
       master, replica and backup systems on Hermes.

OPTIONS
       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -D md5_dir
              Read and write md5 checksums from md5_dir, overrides
              configuration file setting of the same name.

       -k count
              Concurrency level: run up to count asynchronous child processes.

       -f input_file
              List of accounts to process: use in place of command line
              arguments.

       -m offset
              Regenerate given fraction of the user database in combination
              with -M below.

       -M modulo
              Regenerate MD5 checksums for given fraction of user database.
              Allows for rolling consisency checks.

       -v     Verbose mode.
