NAME

       vos_status - Reports a Volume Server's status

SYNOPSIS

       vos status -server <machine name>
           [-cell <cell name>]
           [-noauth] [-localauth]
           [-verbose] [-encrypt] [-noresolve] [-help]

       vos st -s <machine name>
           [-c <cell name>]
           [-noa] [-l] [-v] [-e] [-nor] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The vos status command reports on what the Volume Server on a certain
       file server machine is doing at the moment the command is issued. If
       there is no activity, the following message appears:

          No active transactions on <machine_name>

       This command is useful mainly if there is concern that the Volume
       Server is not performing requested actions.

OPTIONS

       -server <server name>
           Identifies the file server machine running the Volume Server for
           which to display status information. Provide the machine's IP
           address or its host name (either fully qualified or using an
           unambiguous abbreviation). For details, see vos(1).

       -cell <cell name>
           Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this
           argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see vos(1).

       -noauth
           Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not
           combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see
           vos(1).

       -localauth
           Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local
           /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The vos command interpreter
           presents it to the Volume Server and Volume Location Server during
           mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell
           argument or -noauth flag. For more details, see vos(1).

       -verbose
           Produces on the standard output stream a detailed trace of the
           command's execution. If this argument is omitted, only warnings and
           error messages appear.

       -encrypt
           Encrypts the command so that the operation's results are not
           transmitted across the network in clear text. This option is
           available in OpenAFS versions 1.4.11 or later and 1.5.60 or later.

       -noresolve
           Shows all servers as IP addresses instead of the DNS name. This is
           very useful when the server address is registered as 127.0.0.1 or
           when dealing with multi-homed servers. This option is available in
           OpenAFS versions 1.4.8 or later and 1.5.35 or later.

       -help
           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
           are ignored.

OUTPUT

       There are two possible types of output.

       The following message indicates that the Volume Server is not currently
       performing any actions.

          No active transactions on I<machine name>

       The other possible output is a set of information which is probably
       more useful to programmers than to system administrators. A full
       understanding of all the fields requires familiarity with the code for
       the Volume Server, as many of the fields report ID numbers and flag
       values that the Volume Server sets for internal use.

       Among the fields of possible interest to an administrator are:

       ·   "created" on the first line, which indicates the time at which this
           transaction started

       ·   In OpenAFS 1.5.75 and later, "lastActiveTime" on the second line,
           which indicates the last time an RPC interacted with this
           transaction

       ·   "attachFlags" on the third line, where a value of "offline"
           indicates that the volume is not available for other read or write
           operations during this transaction

       ·   "volume" on the fourth line, which specifies the affected volume's
           ID number

       ·   "partition" on the fourth line, which indicates where the affected
           volume resides (at the beginning of the transaction if this is a
           move)

       ·   "procedure" on the fourth line, which indicates the internal
           subprocedure being executed

       A fifth line can appear during certain transactions, and includes the
       following fields:

       ·   "packetRead" tracks whether information is being read into the
           volume. Its absolute value is not informative, but the way it
           changes shows whether the vos restore command is executing
           properly.  As the vos status command is issued repeatedly during a
           restore, "readNext" increases monotonically to indicate that
           information is being read into the volume.

       ·   "packetSend" tracks whether information is being sent out of the
           volume. Its absolute value is not informative, but the way it
           changes shows whether the vos dump command is executing properly.
           As the vos status command is issued repeatedly during a dump,
           "transmitNext" increases monotonically to indicate that information
           is being transferred from the volume into the dump file.

       The "lastReceiveTime" and "lastSendTime" are for internal use.

EXAMPLES

       The following example illustrates the kind of output that sometimes
       appears when the Volume Server on "fs1.abc.com" is executing a dump at
       the time this command is issued.

          % vos status fs1.abc.com
          --------------------------------------------
          transaction: 575  created: Tue Jan 2 8:34:56 1990
          attachFlags: offline
          volume: 536871080 partition: /vicepb procedure: Dump
          packetRead: 2 lastReceiveTime: 113313 packetSend: 24588
              lastSendTime: 113317
