faxq - display fax jobs queued by faxspool(1)


faxq [<command>] [-osa] [-v] [-r] [-P<job><prio>]


Display the fax queue set up by faxspool(1).

faxq looks for all the jobs queued by faxspool(1) to /var/spool/fax/outgoing/*. For each
job in the queue, faxq displays some status informations about it. If no options are
specified, one line per queued fax job is printed, displaying the job number, sender,
number of pages and target fax number.


faxq stop stops the fax queue processing by creating the file
/var/spool/fax/outgoing/stop. This command works only if you have write access to the
spool directory. Depending on local setup, this means ``root only'' or ``fax
administrator group''. If you don't have write access, an error message is printed.

faxq start re-starts a previously stopped fax queue, by removing the ``stop'' file. As
for faxq stop this only works if you have write access.


-v Tells faxq to print a more verbose report for each job (multiple lines).

-o Show old jobs, already sent but still in the queue directory, too.

-s Show suspended jobs (stopped because of too many fatal errors during sending). You
can restart those jobs with faxq -r

-a Show all jobs (active, old, suspended).

-r Restart suspended jobs. Every suspended job in the queue (that you have write
permissions for) will be requeued. Use faxrm to delete jobs that you do not want
to be sent!

-P <job> <prio>
Change the priority of fax job <job> to <prio>. Example: "faxq -P F000247 3".
