How to list print queues in AIX 5L

1st method of listing print queues in AIX 5L is using lsallq command:

                      Commands Reference, Volume 3, i - m

lsallq Command

Purpose

Lists the names of all configured queues.

Syntax

lsallq [ -c]

Description

The lsallq command lists the names of all configured queues contained in the
/etc/qconfig file. By specifying the -c flag, this listing is displayed in colon
format. This flag is used mainly by SMIT.

You can use the Printer Queues application in Web-based System Manager (wsm) to
change print queue characteristics. You could also use the System Management
Interface Tool (SMIT) smit lsallq fast path to run this command.

Flag

-c Causes colon format output for use by SMIT.

2nd method for listing print queues is using enq -sAW command:

Description

The enq command is a general-purpose utility for enqueuing requests to a shared
resource, typically a printer device. Use the enq command to enqueue requests,
cancel requests, alter the priority of a request, and display the status of
queues and devices.

The enq command has five different syntax diagrams because all the flags are not
meant to work together. Some of these flags are meant for file processing and
accept FileName as an option. The other flags are used for changing the priority
of a print job, displaying the status, changing the status of the queue or the
queue daemon, and canceling a print job.

-A Provides status for all queues. This is like running the enq -q command once
for each queue in the qconfig file.
-s Obtains the status of print queues without listing any files.
-W Specifies the wide status format with longer queue names, device names, and
job numbers. Job number information is available on AIX 4.3.2 and later. This
flag can be used with the -A flag or the -q flag. It cannot be used with the -L
flag. If the -L flag and -W flag are used simultaneously, the first one
specified takes precedence.

 For example:

$ lsallq
QUEUE272
QUEUE262
QUEUE313
QUEUE315
QUEUE316
QUEUE318
QUEUE319
QUEUE320
QUEUE321
QUEUE322
QUEUE323
QUEUE324

$ enq -sAW
Queue                Dev            Status       Job Files              User         PP   %  Blks  Cp Rnk
-------------------- -------------- --------- ------ ------------------ ---------- ---- --- ----- --- ---
QUEUE272                @QUEUE272         READY
QUEUE262                @QUEUE262         READY
QUEUE313                @QUEUE313         READY
QUEUE315                @QUEUE315         READY
QUEUE316                @QUEUE316         READY
QUEUE318                @QUEUE318         READY
QUEUE319                @QUEUE319         READY
QUEUE320                @QUEUE320         READY
QUEUE321                @QUEUE321         READY
QUEUE322                @QUEUE322         READY
QUEUE323                @QUEUE323         READY
QUEUE324                @QUEUE324         READY
