nsrwatch - command for character-based display of NetWorker status


       nsrwatch [ -s server ] [ -p polltime ]


       The  nsrwatch  command  displays  a  NetWorker  server's  status.   The
       server's name is specified by the optional -s server argument.   If  no
       server  is specified, it defaults to the same server that would be used
       by a command, such as recover(1) in the current directory.  If there is
       no  NetWorker  service  on  the selected machine, the command issues an
       error message.  The polling interval is specified by  the  optional  -p
       polltime argument (in seconds).  The default is two seconds.

       Users  can  run  nsrwatch  from any terminal that has enough termcap(5)
       capabilities for cursor positioning; it does not require any particular
       window  system.   The  nsrwatch program gets its information via remote
       procedure calls to the specified server. This way it can be  used  from
       any machine that can access the server through the network.

       The  nsrwatch  display is divided into a header and several panels: the
       server panel, the device panel, the sessions panel, the messages panel,
       and  the pending message panel.  The panel sizes are adjusted depending
       on the size of the terminal or window being used.

       The header contains the name of the server and the current  time.   The
       server  panel provides current status of the server.  The first line of
       the panel is reserved for error messages.  This line is usually  blank.
       The  next  line tells how long the server has been up, and the server's
       release version (which may not be the same as the client's release ver-
       sion).   The  following  lines  display how many saves and recovers the
       current server has performed.

       The device panel displays the devices known to the current server.  For
       each  device, the panel displays its name, the device type, the name of
       the mounted volume, or (unmounted) if no volume is mounted, and  device
       status.  The name may be followed by (J) if the device is configured as
       part of a jukebox device.  The sessions panel provides current save set
       information  for each active session (saving, recovering, or browsing).
       The messages panel displays a history of messages of  general  interest
       to  the operator.  Finally, the pending message panel displays messages
       that require operator intervention.

       The nsrwatch program runs continuously until quit, stopped,  or  inter-
       rupted (Control-C, for example).  Typing the q character quits the pro-
       gram, the Control-L forces a screen clear and redraw, while  any  other
       character forces the status to be updated.

       The  nsrwatch  program checks for new devices at a slower rate than the
       polling rate, so it might take up to a minute after  a  new  device  is
       added  before  the device is noticed.  To recognize the devices immedi-
       ately, either restart the program or press Control-L.  Deleted  devices
       may cause a 'resource does not exist' message temporarily, but other-
       wise they are noticed immediately.


       -s server
              Sets the current NetWorker server to server.

       -p polltime
              Sets the polling interval to be polltime seconds.
