Linux man page: sysadmin


sysad­min — res­pon­sible for eve­ry­thing ima­gi­nable that may or may not have to do with the sys­tem you’re using. Contrac­tion of “sys­tem” and “administrator”


sysad­min [-ab] [-cd] [-ef] etc.…..


sysad­min takes care of eve­ry­thing, is gene­rally haran­gued, must be sup­plied with cof­fee, cho­co­late, and alco­hol in order to func­tion pro­perly, can­not be expo­sed to direct sun­light, and must not be allo­wed to have a life. sysad­min is not inten­ded as a user inter­face rou­tine; other pro­grams pro­vide user-friendly front ends; sysad­min is used by eve­ryone who can track him [her] down.With no flags, sysad­min reads its stan­dard input up to an EOF, or a line which sysad­min wishes to parse, and then pro­ceeds to ignore it enti­rely and read news all day. When invo­ked with the –w option, sysad­min reads stan­dard input and responds accor­ding to terms of job description.


Go into Bas­tard Ope­ra­tor From Hell mode. This option causes sysad­min to use tools sto­red in the /usr/lib/bofh direc­tory to parse the stan­dard input and route user tasks appropriately. 
causes sysad­min to become caffeine-deprived, resul­ting in sys­tem slowdowns. 
causes the sysad­min to func­tion nor­mally while aug­men­ting the stan­dard input with beer(5). Can be used with the –t option as well, depen­ding upon which ver­sion of sysad­min you are running. 
causes the sysad­min to smoke tobacco, which can result in signi­fi­cant per­for­mance impro­ve­ment, pro­vi­ded you are run­ning the cor­rect ver­sion of sysadmin. 
Spe­cify an alter­nate confi­gu­ra­tion file ( is the standard). 
set debug­gin value to X. 
Set the full name of the sysadmin. 
Create the confi­gu­ra­tion freeze file. 
Sets the name of the “luser” per­son (that is, ori­gi­na­tor of a given request). –l can only be used by “trus­ted” users (who are lis­ted in 


The –t option should not be used with a ver­sion of sysad­min which is not capable of par­sing tobacco input. Though the func­tio­na­lity of this com­mand may seem simi­lar to the –b option, it should not be confu­sed with that or the rela­ted –c option.
