Advanced Listserv – Lists Summary

Summaries are interesting insights into the global use of the Listserv lists. You can ask for summaries of the number of lists at a given site with the lists command:

lists summary

List membership summary for selected servers known to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.NODAK.EDU on 20 Jun 1998 07:15:21 Number of lists Membership count Nodeid Public Total Public Total ------ ------ ----- ------ ----- LISTSERV.UIC.EDU 253 918 22277 53323

If you prefer sending all of your list commands to the same server, you can specify which server you want the summary for:

lists summary <servername>

The following command lists a summary for all Listserv lists:

lists summary all

List membership summary for all servers known to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.NODAK.EDU on 20 Jun 1998 11:28:26 Number of lists Membership count Nodeid Public Total Public Total ------ ------ ----- ------ ----- 129.127.174.21 1 1 1 1 1611KJB.ORG 9 9 642 642 192.122.139.157 1 1 0 0 217.METADESIGN.COM 1 1 47 47 A3197CDR.SSR.HP.COM 4 4 33 33 ACHILLES.WAM.LODZ.PL 1 1 377 377 ACM.ORG 422 488 35855 143565 ACM.UCSD.EDU 2 10 266 2166 ACS.WOOSTER.EDU 3 116 423 3088 ADMIN.HUMBERC.ON.CA 105 229 11063 14591 ADMIN.IIT.EDU 1 1 13 13 ADMIN.TAMU-COMMERCE.EDU 10 46 1302 2713 ADMIN1.WAYCROSS.TEC.GA.US 5 5 279 279

The lists summary all command is one way to find out the names of all of the hosts connected to the Listserv system. You can then query each host individually with the List and other commands to find information on the lists supported on each server.

The following command returns the total number of lists and members using the Listserv system around the world:
