       smbstatus - report on current Samba connections

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

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

       smbstatus is a very simple program to list the  current	Samba  connec‐

	      If samba has been compiled with the profiling option, print only
	      the contents of the profiling shared memory area.

	      gives brief output.

       -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-spe‐
	      cific 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.

	      debuglevel is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this
	      parameter is not specified is zero.

	      The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the log
	      files about the activities of the server. At level 0, only crit‐
	      ical 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  pa‐
	      rameter in the smb.conf file.

	      Base directory name for log/debug files. The  extension  ".prog‐
	      name"  will  be appended (e.g. log.smbclient, log.smbd, etc...).
	      The log file is never removed by the client.

	      gives verbose output.

	      causes smbstatus to only list locks.

	      causes smbstatus to include byte range locks.

	      print a list of smbd(8) processes and exit. Useful  for  script‐

	      causes smbstatus to only list shares.

	      Print a summary of command line options.

	      selects information relevant to username only.

       This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.

       smbd(8) and smb.conf(5).

       The  original  Samba software and related utilities were created by An‐
       drew 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 and up‐
       dated 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 Doc‐
       Book XML 4.2 for Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander Bokovoy.
