DESCRIPTION

       lr_log2report reads a log file from STDIN or the specified argument and
       will output a formatted Lire report on STDOUT or in the output_file
       argument. The format of the log file is specified using the
       dlf_converter argument. Use the --help dlf-converters option to get a
       list of all currently available DLF converters.

       In case the log is passed in a compressed format, it’s uncompressed on
       the fly, using gzip(1).

       WARNING: This command outputs binary data on the terminal for all
       output formats except txt and xml. You should redirect stdout to a file
       when using those output formats.

       In the case where output format is html, the output_file argument will
       be interpreted as a directory name.  This directory will get created if
       needed, and will hold the various html files.  In case this argument is
       omitted, a tar(1) file should be output on STDOUT (but see the BUGS
       section).

       WARNING: Running this command on big logfiles generally means you’ll
       need lots of free diskspace.  See Lire::LrCommand(3pm) for details.

EXAMPLES

       To process a Postfix log and display the report as text, use

        $ lr_log2report postfix /var/log/mail.log

       To process a Postfix log and create an HTML report in a directory, use

        $ lr_log2report -o html postfix /var/log/mail.log postfix-report

BUGS

       If

        --output html

       is specified, both logfile and output_file need to be specified.
       Specifying "-" (or "/dev/stdin") as logfile is supported.  So this

        $ tai64nfrac < /var/log/qmail-send/current | \
           lr_log2report qmail --output html - /tmp/report

       will work.
