Old, .Old - Contains the combined uucp program log files
The /usr/spool/uucp/.Old directory contains the combined uucp program log files. The uucp program creates log files of the activities of the uucico and uuxqt daemons in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log directory. The log files are compacted by the /usr/lib/uucp/uudemon.cleanu command, a shell procedure, which combines the files and stores them in the .Old directory.
By default, the uudemon.cleanu command removes log files after 2 weeks. The length of time log files are kept can be changed to suit the needs of an individual system. The log files can be viewed using the uulog command.
Daemons: cron(8), uucico(8)
Commands: uucp(1), uudemon.cleanu(4), uulog(1), uux(1) delim off
