MAKEWHATIS.LOCAL(8)	  BSD System Manager's Manual	   MAKEWHATIS.LOCAL(8)

NAME
     makewhatis.local, catman.local — start makewhatis or catman for local
     file systems

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/libexec/makewhatis.local [options] directories ...
     /usr/libexec/catman.local [options] directories ...

DESCRIPTION
     The makewhatis.local utility starts makewhatis(1) only for file systems
     physically mounted on the system where the makewhatis.local is being exe‐
     cuted.  Running makewhatis by periodic weekly for rw nfs-mounted /usr may
     kill your NFS server -- all NFS clients start makewhatis at the same
     time!  So use this wrapper for cron(8) instead of calling makewhatis
     directly.	The catman.local utility is using for same purposes as
     makewhatis.local but for catman(1).

FILES
     /etc/periodic/weekly/320.whatis	  run makewhatis.local every week
     /etc/periodic/weekly/330.catman	  run catman.local every week

SEE ALSO
     catman(1), find(1), makewhatis(1), cron(8), periodic(8)

HISTORY
     The makewhatis.local utility appeared in FreeBSD 2.2.
