lr_vendor_cron - generate Lire reports from all known log files on the
lr_vendor_cron is designed to be invoked by cron. On systems
supporting /etc/cron.d/, this script can be invoked by creating
/etc/cron.d/lire, which should read e.g.:
02 5 * * * root /usr/sbin/lr_vendor_cron daily
22 5 * * 0 root /usr/sbin/lr_vendor_cron weekly
42 5 1 * * root /usr/sbin/lr_vendor_cron monthly
lr_vendor_cron reads files /etc/sysconfig/lire.d/*.cfg and
/etc/default/lire.d/*.cfg. For each log file, such a file should
exist. The files should set shell variables â€˜serviceâ€™ (a Lire service,
e.g. sendmail), â€˜logfileâ€™ (e.g. /var/log/mail.log.1.gz), â€˜filterâ€™
(e.g. â€™gzip -dcâ€™ or â€™zcat â”‚ grep sendmailâ€™), and â€˜rotateperiodâ€™ (one of
the supported lr_vendor_cron arguments).
It then invokes lr_log2mail(1) on the â€˜filterâ€™ed log file. Reading and
filtering the log is done as root, lr_log2mail is run as user lire,
using su(1). Output is fed to logger(1).
lr_vendor_cron is supposed to be run as root. However, please note
that this script is distributed WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY. If you donâ€™t
like to run such a script as root, make sure your lire user has read
access to all log files youâ€™d like to get processed, and adapt this
script. We supply this script mainly for people building packages. On
many Unix and GNU/Linux distributions, itâ€™s hard to enforce log file
readability by the lire user. This script is mainly a way to work
lr_vendor_cron honours DEBUG, CONFDIR, PRIORITY (for logger(1) call),
and LIREUSER. Beware! PRIORITY as used here is independent of the
LR_FACILITY as set in /etc/lire/defaults. This script does not use any
of the settings in /etc/lire/defaults.
