NAME
       smbstatus - report on current Samba connections

SYNOPSIS
       smbstatus [-P] [-b] [-d <debug level>] [-v] [-L] [-B] [-p] [-S]
	[-s <configuration file>] [-u <username>]

DESCRIPTION
       This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

       smbstatus is a very simple program to list the current Samba
       connections.

OPTIONS
       -P|--profile
	   If samba has been compiled with the profiling option, print only
	   the contents of the profiling shared memory area.

       -b|--brief
	   gives brief output.

       -d|--debuglevel=level
	   level is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this
	   parameter is not specified is 0.

	   The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the log
	   files about the activities of the server. At level 0, only critical
	   errors and serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a reasonable
	   level for day-to-day running - it generates a small amount of
	   information about operations carried out.

	   Levels above 1 will generate considerable amounts of log data, and
	   should only be used when investigating a problem. Levels above 3
	   are designed for use only by developers and generate HUGE amounts
	   of log data, most of which is extremely cryptic.

	   Note that specifying this parameter here will override the log
	   level parameter in the smb.conf file.

       -V
	   Prints the program version number.

       -s <configuration file>
	   The file specified contains the configuration details required by
	   the server. The information in this file includes server-specific
	   information such as what printcap file to use, as well as
	   descriptions of all the services that the server is to provide. See
	   smb.conf for more information. The default configuration file name
	   is determined at compile time.

       -l|--log-basename=logdirectory
	   Base directory name for log/debug files. The extension ".progname"
	   will be appended (e.g. log.smbclient, log.smbd, etc...). The log
	   file is never removed by the client.

       -v|--verbose
	   gives verbose output.

       -L|--locks
	   causes smbstatus to only list locks.

       -B|--byterange
	   causes smbstatus to include byte range locks.

       -p|--processes
	   print a list of smbd(8) processes and exit. Useful for scripting.

       -S|--shares
	   causes smbstatus to only list shares.

       -h|--help
	   Print a summary of command line options.

       -u|--user=<username>
	   selects information relevant to username only.

AUTHOR
       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by
       Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

       The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer. The man page
       sources were converted to YODL format (another excellent piece of Open
       Source software, available at ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/) and
       updated for the Samba 2.0 release by Jeremy Allison. The conversion to
       DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter. The conversion to
       DocBook XML 4.2 for Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander Bokovoy.
