Postscript maps from the results."

inndelay By Fabien TASSIN. (At ftp://ftp.eerie.fr/pub/usenet/inndelay)

A perl-based innwatch(8)

innd-timer.shar.gz (At BELNET)
"a patch to innd (1.4unoff4) which adds reporting of statistics of how much time innd is spending
waiting (idle), as well as numbers of other events. Good for comparing news servers and seeing

"These are two little tools that will display a [text] histogram of the lag [post to arrival using Date headers] of the last 1000 arriving articles, along with some interesting statistics about your feed. These are both perl scripts"

" which gives info about innd operation mode, filesystem space, actual News connections, queue
lengths, and input/output traffic."
