ovdb_stat displays information from the ovdb database: Berkeley DB
statistics, newsgroup data, and overview records; and optionally
outputs in HTML format.
Newsgroup himark, lowmark, article count, and flag for the given newsgroups
(as stored in the ovdb ``groupinfo'' database) are displayed.
Similar to -g, except the himark, lowmark, and count are calculated
by actually scanning the overview records and counting them.
This can be a lengthy operation on groups with lots of articles.
Internal data regarding the given newsgroups are displayed.
Overview records are retrieved. The artnumrange parameter may be
a single article number, or a range of articles in the format "low-hi".
Output is presented in HTML format.

Displays ovdb version, and Berkeley DB version.
Displays information about the given database, as returned by the
Berkeley DB db->stat() call. This operation may take a long time
on busy systems (several minutes or more).
ovdb_stat may be safely killed with the INT, TERM, or HUP signals.
It catches those signals and exits cleanly.
Do not kill ovdb_stat with other signals, unless absolutely necessary,
because it may leave stale locks in the DB environment.
