       lr_log2mail - send a report generated from a log file by email


       lr_log2mail [options] service addresses...

       lr_log2report --version

       lr_log2report --help [dlf-converters|output-formats|report-templates]


       --help [section]
           If no argument is given, prints usage information and exits. Argument can be one of
           the following:

               Prints the list of available DLF converters and exits.

               Prints the list of available output formats and exits.

               Prints the list of available report templates and exits.

           Prints Lire's version and exits.

       --output-format|-o output format
           Selects the ouput format in which to generate the report.

       --template name
           Uses the report configuration named name to generate the report.

       --log-file logfile
           Selects the log file that should be processed instead of STDIN.

       --subject|-s subject
           Sets the subject of the email message. Defaults to 'Your format report'.

       --extra-file file
           An additional text file that will be sent along the report. If the output format is
           txt, it will be appended to the report.


       The lr_log2mail command is similar to the lr_log2report(1) command with the difference
       that the report is sent by email. The log file is read from STDIN or from the file
       specified using the --log-file option. 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. All remaining arguments are interpreted as email
       addresses to which to send the report. In case the log is passed in a compressed format,
       it's uncompressed on the fly, using gzip(1).

       The report will be encapsulated in a MIME email appropriate for the output format. For
       example, ASCII reports will be sent inline, PDF reports will be sent as a file attachment
       and HTML reports should appear inline in a HTML-capable mail reader.

       The From and Reply-To headers in the outgoing emails are set to the values of the
       lr_mail_from and lr_mail_replyto configuration variables.


        % lr_log2mail -s "bind8 report" bind8_query \
            root "Joe User <>" < /var/log/query.log
