NAME
       smbstatus - report on current Samba connections

SYNOPSIS
       smbstatus [-P] [-b] [-d <debug level>] [-v] [-L] [-B] [-p] [-S] [-N]
        [-f] [-s <configuration file>] [-u <username>] [-n|--numeric]
        [-R|--profile-rates]

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.

       -R|--profile-rates
           If samba has been compiled with the profiling option, print the
           contents of the profiling shared memory area and the call rates.

       -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|--version
           Prints the program version number.

       -s|--configfile=<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.

       --option=<name>=<value>
           Set the smb.conf(5) option "<name>" to value "<value>" from the
           command line. This overrides compiled-in defaults and options read
           from the configuration file.

       -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.

       -N|--notify
           causes smbstatus to display registered file notifications

       -f|--fast
           causes smbstatus to not check if the status data is valid by
           checking if the processes that the status data refer to all still
           exist. This speeds up execution on busy systems and clusters but
           might display stale data of processes that died without cleaning up
           properly.

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

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

       -n|--numeric
           causes smbstatus to display numeric UIDs and GIDs instead of
           resolving them to names.
