       clamdtop - monitor the Clam AntiVirus Daemon

       clamdtop [options] [clamdspec ...]

       clamdtop  is  a tool to monitor one or multiple clamd(s).  It
       has a (color) ncurses  interface,  that  shows  the  jobs  in
       clamd's queue, memory usage, and information about the loaded
       signature database.  You can specify on the  command-line  to
       which  clamd(s)  it  should  connect  to.  By default it will
       attempt  to  connect  to  the  local  clamd  as  defined   in

       -h, --help
              Display help information and exit.

       -V, --version
              Print  version  number  and  exit.  --config-file=FILE
              Read clamd settings from FILE,  to  determine  how  to
              connect to it.

              Specifies  the  clamd  to connect to: either a path to
              the local (unix domain) socket  of  clamd,  or  an  IP
              address  and an port number (that defaults to 3310) to
              connect to a local or remote clamd using TCP/IP.


              Displays a short helpscreen, describing the meaning of
              various elements on the display.

       up arrow, down arrow

              If  you  are  monitoring multiple clamds then clamdtop
              will show an overview screen by default. You  can  use
              the  up  arrow  and   down arrow keys to cycle through
              each clamd individually, and the overview  screen.   A
              blue  bar  will  highlight the clamd that is currently
              shown in detail. On the overview screen  none  of  the
              clamds  is  selected  (hence no blue bar), and you can
              see the items from the queue of all clamds.

   The top bar
       Shows the version of clamdtop and the current time.  Clamdtop
       updates the display once every 2 seconds.

   The list of clamds
       Shows  the  clamds that clamdtop is connected to, and statis‐
       tics about them.

              clamdtop localhost

       clamdtop uses colors if the terminal is  capable  of  colors.
       If  you  know  your  terminal  is  capable of colors, yet you
       aren't seeing any, then  check  that  your  TERM  environment
       variable  is  set  correctly.   For example try setting it to
       TERM=xterm-color if you are in an xterm-like environment.
