volcheck


NAME
     volcheck - checks for media in a drive and by default checks
     all floppy media

SYNOPSIS
     volcheck [-v] [-i secs] [-t secs] pathname

DESCRIPTION
     The volcheck utility tells Volume Management to look at each
     dev/pathname in sequence and determine if new media has been
     inserted in the drive.

     The default  action  is  to  volcheck  all  checkable  media
     managed by volume management.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -i secs  Set  the  frequency  of  device  checking  to  secs
              seconds.   The  default  is 2 seconds.  The minimum
              frequency is 1 second.



     -t secs  Check  the  named  device(s)  for  the  next   secs
              seconds.   The maximum number of seconds allowed is
              28800, which is 8 hours. The frequency of  checking
              is specified by -i. There is no default total time.



     -v       Verbose.



OPERANDS
     The following operands are supported:

     pathname        The path name of a media device.



EXAMPLES
     Example 1: A sample of the volcheck command.

     The following example

             example% volcheck -v /dev/diskette
             /dev/diskette has media

     asks Volume Management to examine the floppy drive  for  new
     media.
     The following example

             example% volcheck -i 2 -t 600 /dev/diskette1 &

     asks Volume Management if there is a floppy  in  the  floppy
     drive every 2 seconds for 600 seconds (10 minutes).

WARNINGS
     Due to a hardware limitation in many floppy drives, the  act
     of checking for media causes mechanical action in the floppy
     drive.   Continuous polling of the floppy drive  will  cause
     the  drive  to  wear out. It is recommended that polling the
     drive only be performed during periods of high use.
