NAME

       amavis-logwatch - An Amavisd-new log parser and analysis utility

SYNOPSIS

       amavis-logwatch [options] [logfile ...]

DESCRIPTION

       The  amavis-logwatch(1)  utility  is  an  Amavisd-new  log parser that produces summaries,
       details, and statistics regarding the operation of Amavisd-new (henceforth, simply  called
       Amavis).

       This  utility  can  be  used  as  a  standalone program, or as a Logwatch filter module to
       produce Amavisd-new summary and detailed reports from within Logwatch.

       Amavis-logwatch is able to produce a wide range of reports with data grouped and sorted as
       much  as possible to reduce noise and highlight patterns.  Brief summary reports provide a
       quick overview of general Amavis operations and message  delivery,  calling  out  warnings
       that  may  require  attention.   Detailed  reports  provide  easy to scan, hierarchically-
       arranged and organized information, with as much or little detail as desired.

       Much of the interesting data is available when Amavis' $log_level is set to  at  least  2.
       See Amavis Log Level below.

       Amavis-logwatch  outputs two principal sections: a Summary section and a Detailed section.
       For readability and quick scanning, all event or hit counts appear  in  the  left  column,
       followed  by  brief  description  of  the event type, and finally additional statistics or
       count representations may appear in the rightmost column.

       The following segment from a sample Summary report illustrates:

       The report indicates there were 9 general warnings, and Amavis scanned a  total  of  20313
       messages for a total of 1008.53 megabytes or 1,057,524,252 bytes.  The next summary groups
       shows the Blocked / Passed overview,  with  1190  Blocked  messages  (broken  down  as  18
       messages  blocked  as  malware,  4  messages with banned names, 416 spam messages, and 752
       discarded messages), and 19123 Passed messages (47 messages with  bad  headers  and  19076
       clean messages).

       The  next  (optional)  summary  grouping  shows  message disposition by contents category.
       There were 18 malware messages and  4  banned  file  messages  (all  blocked),  1168  Spam
       messages,  of which 416 were blocked (quarantined) and 752 discarded.  Finally, there were
       19123 messages consdidered to be Ham (i.e. not spam), 47 of which contained bad headers.

       Additional count summaries for a variety of events are also listed.

       There are dozens of sub-sections available in the Detailed report, each  of  whose  output
       can  be  controlled  in  various ways.  Each sub-section attempts to group and present the
       most meaningful data at superior levels, while pushing less useful or noisy  data  towards
       inferior  levels.   The goal is to provide as much benefit as possible from smart grouping
       of data, to allow faster report scanning, pattern  identification,  and  problem  solving.
       Data  is always sorted in descending order by count, and then numerically by IP address or
       alphabetically as appropriate.

       The following Spam blocked segment from a sample Detailed  report  illustrates  the  basic
       hierarchical level structure of amavis-logwatch:

           ****** Detailed *******************************************

              19346   Spam blocked -----------------------------------
                756      from@example.com
                 12         10.0.0.2
                 12            <>
                 12         192.168.2.2

                  5         192.168.2.1
                ...

       The  amavis-logwatch  utility reads from STDIN or from the named Amavis logfile.  Multiple
       logfile arguments may be specified, each processed in order.   The  user  running  amavis-
       logwatch must have read permission on each named log file.

   Options
       The options listed below affect the operation of amavis-logwatch.  Options specified later
       on the command  line  override  earlier  ones.   Any  option  may  be  abbreviated  to  an
       unambiguous length.

       --[no]autolearn
       --show_autolearn boolean
              Enables  (disables)  output of the autolearn report.  This report is only available
              if the default Amavis $log_templ has been modified to provide autolearn results  in
              log  entries.   This  can  be  done by uncommenting two lines in the Amavis program
              itself (where the default  log  templates  reside),  or  by  correctly  adding  the
              $log_templ  variable  to  the  amavisd.conf file.  See Amavis' README.customize and
              search near the end of the Amavisd program for "autolearn".

       --[no]by_ccat_summary
       --show_by_ccat_summary boolean
              Enables (disables) the  by  contents  category  summary  in  the  Summary  section.
              Default: enabled.

       -f config_file
       --config_file config_file
              Use  an  alternate  configuration  file  config_file  instead of the default.  This
              option may be used more than once.  Multiple configuration files will be  processed
              in the order presented on the command line.  See CONFIGURATION FILE below.

       --debug keywords
              Output  debug  information  during the operation of amavis-logwatch.  The parameter
              keywords is one or more comma or space separated keywords.  To obtain the  list  of
              valid keywords, use --debug xxx where xxx is any invalid keyword.

       --detail level
              Sets the maximum detail level for amavis-logwatch to level.  This option is global,
              overriding any other output limiters described below.

              The amavis-logwatch utility produces a Summary section,  a  Detailed  section,  and
              additional  report  sections.  With level less than 5, amavis-logwatch will produce
              only the Summary section.  At level 5 and above,  the  Detailed  section,  and  any
              additional report sections are candidates for output.  Each incremental increase in
              level generates one additional hierarchical sub-level of  output  in  the  Detailed
              section  of the report.  At level 10, all levels are output.  Lines that exceed the
              maximum report width (specified with max_report_width) will be cut.  Setting  level
              to 11 will prevent lines in the report from being cut (see also --line_style).

       --[no]first_recip_only
       --show_first_recip_only boolean
              Specifies  whether  or  not  to  sort by, and show, only the first recipient when a
              scanned messages contains multiple recipients.

       --help Print usage information and a brief description about command line options.

       --ipaddr_width width
              Specifies that IP addresses in address/hostname pairs  should  be  printed  with  a
              field  width of width characters.  Increasing the default may be useful for systems
              using long IPv6 addresses.

       -l limiter=levelspec
       --limit limiter=levelspec
              Sets the level limiter limiter with the specification levelspec.

       --line_style style
              Specifies how to handle long report  lines.   Three  styles  are  available:  full,
              truncate,  and  wrap.   Setting  style  to  full  will  prevent  cutting  lines  to
              max_report_width; this is what occurs when detail is 11 or higher.  When  style  is
              truncate (the default), long lines will be truncated according to max_report_width.
              Setting style to wrap will wrap lines longer than max_report_width such  that  left
              column  hit  counts  are  not obscured.  This option takes precedence over the line
              style implied by the detail level.  The options --full, --truncate, and --wrap  are
              synonyms.

       --nodetail
              Disables  the  Detailed  section of the report, and all supplemental reports.  This
              option provides a convenient mechanism to quickly disable all  sections  under  the
              Detailed  report,  where  subsequent command line options may re-enable one or more
              sections to create specific reports.

       --sarules `S,H´
       --sarules default
              Enables the SpamAssassin Rules Hit report.  The comma-separated S and  H  arguments
              are top N values for the Spam and Ham reports, respectively, and can be any integer
              greater than or equal to 0, or the keyword  all.   The  keyword  default  uses  the
              built-in default values.

       --nosarules
              Disables the SpamAssassin Rules Hit report.

       --sa_timings nrows
              Enables  the SpamAssassin Timings percentiles report.  The report can be limited to
              the top N rows with the nrows argument.   This  report  requires  Amavis  2.6+  and
              SpamAssassin 3.3+.

       --sa_timings_percentiles `P1 [P2 ...]´
              Specifies  the percentiles shown in the SpamAssassin Timings report.  The arguments
              P1 ... are integers from 0 to 100 inclusive.  Their order will be preserved in  the
              report.

       --nosa_timings
              Disables the SpamAssassin Timings report.

       --version
              Print amavis-logwatch version information.

       --score_frequencies `B1 [B2 ...]´
       --score_frequencies default
              Enables  the  Spam  Score  Frequency  report.   The  arguments B1 ... are frequency
              distribution buckets, and can be any real numbers.  Their order will  be  preserved
              in the report.  The keyword default uses the built-in default values.

       --noscore_frequencies
              Disables the Spam Score Frequency report.

       --score_percentiles `P1 [P2 ...]´
       --score_percentiles default
              Enables  the  Spam  Score  Percentiles  report.   The  arguments P1 ... specify the
              percentiles shown in the report, and are integers from 0  to  100  inclusive.   The
              keyword default uses the built-in default values.

       --noscore_percentiles
              Disables the Spam Score Percentiles report.

       --[no]sect_vars
       --show_sect_vars boolean
              Enables  (disables) supplementing each Detailed section title with the name of that
              section's level limiter.  The  name  displayed  is  the  command  line  option  (or
              configuration  file  variable) used to limit that section's output.  With the large
              number of level limiters available in amavis-logwatch, this a convenient  mechanism
              for determining exactly which level limiter affects a section.

       --[no]startinfo
       --show_startinfo boolean
              Enables  (disables)  the  Amavis  startup report showing most recent Amavis startup
              details.

       --[no]summary

       --show_summary
              Enables (disables) displaying of the  the  Summary  section  of  the  report.   The
              variable Amavis_Show_Summary in used in a configuration file.

       --syslog_name namepat
              Specifies  the syslog service name that amavis-logwatch uses to match syslog lines.
              Only log lines whose service name matches the perl regular expression namepat  will
              be  used  by amavis-logwatch; all non-matching lines are silently ignored.  This is
              useful when a pre-installed Amavis package uses  a  name  other  than  the  default
              (amavis).

              Note:  if  you  use  parenthesis  in  your  regular  expression,  be  sure they are
              cloistering and not capturing: use  (?:pattern) instead of (pattern).

       --timings percent
              Enables the Amavis Scan Timings percentiles report.   The  report  can  be  top  N-
              percent limited with the percent argument.

       --timings_percentiles `P1 [P2 ...]´
              Specifies  the  percentiles shown in the Scan Timings report.  The arguments P1 ...
              are integers from 0 to 100 inclusive.  Their order will be preserved in the report.

       --notimings
              Disables the Amavis Scan Timings report.

       --version
              Print amavis-logwatch version information.

   Level Limiters
       The output of every section in the Detailed report is controlled by a level limiter.   The
       name of the level limiter variable will be output when the sect_vars option is set.  Level
       limiters are set either via command line in standalone mode with --limit limiter=levelspec
       option,  or  via  configuration  file  variable  $amavis_limiter=levelspec.   Each limiter
       requires a levelspec argument, which is described below in LEVEL CONTROL.

       The list of level limiters is shown below.

LEVEL CONTROL

       The  Detailed section of the report consists of a number of sub-sections, each of which is
       controlled both globally and independently.  Two settings influence the output provided in
       the  Detailed report: a global detail level (specified with --detail) which has final (big
       hammer) output-limiting control over the Detailed section, and sub-section specific detail
       settings  (small  hammer),  which  allow further limiting of the output for a sub-section.
       Each sub-section may be limited to a specific depth  level,  and  each  sub-level  may  be
       limited  with  top  N  or  threshold  limits.  The levelspec argument to each of the level
       limiters listed above is used to accomplish this.

       It is probably best to continue explanation of sub-level limiting with the following well-
       known outline-style hierarchy, and some basic examples:

           level 0
              level 1
                 level 2
                    level 3
                       level 4
                       level 4
                 level 2
                    level 3
                       level 4
                       level 4
                       level 4
                    level 3
                       level 4
                    level 3
              level 1
                 level 2
                    level 3
                       level 4

       The  simplest  form of output limiting suppresses all output below a specified level.  For
       example, a levelspec set to "2" shows only data in levels 0 through 2.  Think of  this  as
       collapsing each sub-level 2 item, thus hiding all inferior levels (3, 4, ...), to yield:

           level 0
              level 1
                 level 2
                 level 2
              level 1
                 level 2

       Sometimes the volume of output in a section is too great, and it is useful to suppress any
       data that does not exceed a certain threshold value.  Consider a dictionary  spam  attack,
       which  produces very lengthy lists of hit-once recipient email or IP addresses.  Each sub-
       level in the hierarchy can be threshold-limited by setting  the  levelspec  appropriately.
       Setting  levelspec  to  the  value  "2::5" will suppress any data at level 2 that does not
       exceed a hit count of 5.

       Perhaps producing a top N list, such as top  10  senders,  is  desired.   A  levelspec  of
       "3:10:" limits level 3 data to only the top 10 hits.

       With  those  simple  examples  out  of the way, a levelspec is defined as a whitespace- or
       comma-separated list of one or more of the following:

       l      Specifies the maximum level to be output for this sub-section, with a range from  0
              to  10.  if l is 0, no levels will be output, effectively disabling the sub-section
              (level 0 data is already provided in the Summary report, so level 1  is  considered
              the  first useful level in the Detailed report).  Higher values will produce output
              up to and including the specified level.

       l.n    Same as above, with the addition that n limits this section's level 1 output to the
              top  n  items.   The  value for n can be any integer greater than 1.  (This form of
              limiting has less utility than the syntax shown below. It is provided for backwards
              compatibility; users are encouraged to use the syntax below).

       l:n:t  This triplet specifies level l, top n, and minimum threshold t.  Each of the values
              are integers, with l being the level limiter as described above, n being  a  top  n
              limiter  for the level l, and t being the threshold limiter for level l.  When both
              n and t are specified,  n  has  priority,  allowing  top  n  lists  (regardless  of
              threshold  value).  If the value of l is omitted, the specified values for n and/or
              t are used for all levels available in the sub-section.  This permits a simple form
              of  wildcarding  (eg.  place  minimum  threshold  limits  on all levels).  However,
              specific limiters always override wildcard  limiters.   The  first  form  of  level
              limiter  may  be  included  in levelspec to restrict output, regardless of how many
              triplets are present.

       All three forms of limiters are effective only when amavis-logwatch's detail level is 5 or
       greater (the Detailed section is not activated until detail is at least 5).

       See the EXAMPLES section for usage scenarios.

CONFIGURATION FILE

       Amavis-logwatch  can  read configuration settings from a configuration file.  Essentially,
       any command line option can be placed into a configuration file, and  these  settings  are
       read upon startup.

       Because  amavis-logwatch  can  run  either  standalone  or  within  Logwatch,  to minimize
       confusion, amavis-logwatch inherits Logwatch's configuration file syntax requirements  and
       conventions.  These are:

       ·   White space lines are ignored.

       ·   Lines beginning with # are ignored

       ·   Settings are of the form:

                   option = value

       ·   Spaces or tabs on either side of the = character are ignored.

       ·   Any value protected in double quotes will be case-preserved.

       ·   All other content is reduced to lowercase (non-preserving, case insensitive).

       ·   All amavis-logwatch configuration settings must be prefixed with "$amavis_" or amavis-
           logwatch will ignore them.

       ·   When running under Logwatch, any values not prefixed with "$amavis_" are  consumed  by
           Logwatch;  it  only  passes  to amavis-logwatch (via environment variable) settings it
           considers valid.

       ·   The values True and Yes are converted to 1, and False and No are converted to 0.

       ·   Order of settings is not preserved within a configuration  file  (since  settings  are
           passed by Logwatch via environment variables, which have no defined order).

       To  include  a command line option in a configuration file, prefix the command line option
       name with the word "$amavis_".  The following configuration file setting and command  line
       option are equivalent:

               $amavis_Line_Style = Truncate

               --line_style Truncate

       Level limiters are also prefixed with $amavis_, but on the command line are specified with
       the --limit option:

               $amavis_SpamBlocked = 2

               --limit SpamBlocked=2

       The order of command line options and configuration file processing occurs as follows:  1)
       The  default configuration file is read if it exists and no --config_file was specified on
       a command line.  2) Configuration files are read and processed in the order found  on  the
       command line.  3) Command line options override any options already set either via command
       line or from any configuration file.

       Command line options are interpreted when they are seen on the  command  line,  and  later
       options will override previously set options.

EXIT STATUS

       The  amavis-logwatch  utility  exits with a status code of 0, unless an error occurred, in
       which case a non-zero exit status is returned.

EXAMPLES

   Running Standalone
       Note: amavis-logwatch reads its log data from one or more named Amavis log files, or  from
       STDIN.   For  brevity, where required, the examples below use the word file as the command
       line argument meaning /path/to/amavis.log.  Obviously you will  need  to  substitute  file
       with the appropriate path.

       To run amavis-logwatch in standalone mode, simply run:

           amavis-logwatch file

       A complete list of options and basic usage is available via:

           amavis-logwatch --help

       To print a summary only report of Amavis log data:

           amavis-logwatch --detail 1 file

       To produce a summary report and a one-level detail report for May 25th:

           grep 'May 25' file | amavis-logwatch --detail 5

       To  produce  only  a  top  10  list of Sent email domains, the summary report and detailed
       reports are first disabled. Since commands line options  are  read  and  enabled  left-to-
       right, the Sent section is re-enabled to level 1 with a level 1 top 10 limiter:

           amavis-logwatch --nosummary --nodetail \
              --limit spamblocked '1 1:10:' file

       The  following  command  and its sample output shows a more complex level limiter example.
       The command gives the top 4 spam  blocked  recipients  (level  1),  and  under  with  each
       recipient  the  top  2  sending  IPs  (level 2) and finally below that, only envelope from
       addresses (level 3) with hit counts greater than 6.  Ellipses indicate top N or threshold-
       limited data:

           amavis-logwatch --nosummary --nodetail \
                   --limit spamblocked '1:4: 2:2: 3::6' file

   Running within Logwatch
       Note:  Logwatch versions prior to 7.3.6, unless configured otherwise, required the --print
       option to print to STDOUT instead of sending reports  via  email.   Since  version  7.3.6,
       STDOUT  is  the  default  output  destination, and the --print option has been replaced by
       --output stdout. Check your  configuration  to  determine  where  report  output  will  be
       directed, and add the appropriate option to the commands below.

       To print a summary report for today's Amavis log data:

           logwatch --service amavis --range today --detail 1

       To print a report for today's Amavis log data, with one level
       of detail in the Detailed section:

           logwatch --service amavis --range today --detail 5

       To print a report for yesterday, with two levels of detail in the Detailed section:

           logwatch --service amavis --range yesterday --detail 6

       To  print  a  report  from  Dec  12th  through Dec 14th, with four levels of detail in the
       Detailed section:

           logwatch --service amavis --range \
                   'between 12/12 and 12/14' --detail 8

       To print a report for today, with all levels of detail:

           logwatch --service amavis --range today --detail 10

       Same as above, but leaves long lines uncropped:

           logwatch --service amavis --range today --detail 11

   Amavis Log Level
       Amavis provides additional log information when the variable $log_level is increased above
       the  default  0 value.  This information is used by the amavis-logwatch utility to provide
       additional reports, not available with the default $log_level=0 value.  A $log_level of  2
       is suggested.

       If  you  prefer  not to increase the noise level in your main mail or Amavis logs, you can
       configure syslog to log Amavis' output to multiple log files, where basic log entries  are
       routed to your main mail log(s) and more detailed entries routed to an Amavis-specific log
       file used to feed the amavis-logwatch utility.

       A convenient way to accomplish this is to change the  Amavis  configuration  variables  in
       amavisd.conf as shown below:

           amavisd.conf:
               $log_level = 2;
               $syslog_facility = 'local5';
               $syslog_priority = 'debug';

       This  increases  $log_level  to  2,  and  sends Amavis' log entries to an alternate syslog
       facility (eg. local5, user), which can then be routed to one or more log files,  including
       your main mail log file:

           syslog.conf:
               #mail.info                         -/var/log/maillog
               mail.info;local5.notice            -/var/log/maillog

               local5.info                        -/var/log/amavisd-info.log

       Amavis'  typical  $log_level  0  messages will be directed to both your maillog and to the
       amavisd-info.log file, but higher $log_level messages will only be routed to the  amavisd-
       info.log   file.    For  additional  information  on  Amavis'  logging,  search  the  file
       RELEASE_NOTES in the Amavis distribution for:

           "syslog priorities are now dynamically derived"

ENVIRONMENT

       The amavis-logwatch program uses the following (automatically set)  environment  variables
       when running under Logwatch:

       LOGWATCH_DETAIL_LEVEL
              This is the detail level specified with the Logwatch command line argument --detail
              or the Detail setting in the ...conf/services/amavis.conf configuration file.

       LOGWATCH_DEBUG
              This is the debug level specified with the Logwatch command line argument --debug.

       amavis_xxx
              The Logwatch program passes all  settings  amavis_xxx  in  the  configuration  file
              ...conf/services/amavis.conf   to  the  amavis  filter  (which  is  actually  named
              .../scripts/services/amavis) via environment variable.
