rlpstat — print status of LP spooler requests on a remote system


/usr/sbin/rlpstat [-d printer] [-u user] [id]...


rlpstat reports the status of the specified jobs or all requests associated with the specified users on the specified printer. At least one id or the name of a printer must be specified.

For each request submitted (by lp command — see lp(1)) rlpstat reports the request ID, user's name, total size of the request, date of the request, and, if it is being transferred, the device.

This command is intended to be used only by the spool system in response to the lpstat command and should not be invoked directly (see lpstat(1)).


rlpstat recognizes the following options and command-line arguments:

-d printer

Status is requested on the specified printer.

-u user

Status is requested on all requests for the user who executed the rlpstat command on the specified printer (see the -d option). You can repeat the -u option to specify more users. The maximum number of users that can be specified is 50.


Status is requested on the specified request IDs (as returned by lp). All the request IDs must be for the same printer. The maximum number of request IDs that can be specified is 50.


rlpstat was developed by the University of California, Berkeley, and HP.
