Summary: Mail Digests of System Log Files to the System Administrator
Logdigest, run by cron at night, greps through system log files
(var/log/messages, /var/log/mail, etc.) to find "interesting" content.

Lines matching the regular expressions in /etc/logdigest are simply
ignored. More expressions can be added to /etc/logdigest/ignore.local.
See /etc/logdigest/config for some general settings.

The results are mailed to the sysadmin daily.

* Thu Nov 05 2009
  - update to 0.2.4:
    - XFS defragmentizer: ignore "fsr[31435]: ino=687296846: zero size, ignoring"
      type messages
    - ignore start message from fsr (XFS defragmentizer), when it logs a
      mountpoint instead of a device.
    - APPARMOR_HINT messages are only used as hint to the Apparmor profiling tool
      when forking a program that is in learn mode.
* Tue Oct 27 2009
  - if EXTENDED_STATS is set to yes, cronjob fails
    due to the missing dependency on procinfo package
* Wed Aug 19 2009
  - update to 0.2.3:
    - vnstat now runs under it's own user id - ignore the logged 'su'
      commands from cron.
    - ignore syslog-ng's new way of reporting statistics
    - ignore ntpd kernel sync status changes
    - the XFS filesystem optimizer rules still missed some log lines
* Fri Jun 19 2009
  - update to 0.2.2:
    - ignore more "passes" of fsr, the XFS filesystem optimizer
    - ignore Linux kernel log messages about IPv6 path MTU discovery,
      which seem to be harmless debug messages. See
    - ignore sshd's warning about DNS inconsistencies (IP addresses
      resolving to names that don't map back). Well-known advice is
      to use only key-based authentication, and unless the attackers
      steal significant amount of CPU there shouldn't be a need to
      deal with log lines caused by this kind of attack.
    - ignore log messages from named when varying the
      clients-per-query value
    - don't show crontab edits without changes
* Mon Jun 08 2009
  - adjust URL to new project site (after move to sourceforge)
  - hide script output for checking about whether eddie needs to be
    restarted, when it's not running
* Wed Jun 03 2009
  - update to 0.2.1:
    - changed mail subject for better sortability in mailboxes: put
      hostname in front of the rest, and omit date and time, which is
      recorded in any mail per se. This changes actually dates back
      to revision 80.
    - list logfiles only when something to be reported has been found
    - reword the leading mail text
    - ignore "ctl_cyrusdb.*: removing log file"
    - rewrite imaps DBMSG rule, so it includes the service name
    - ignore messages from rrpm (remote rpm calls)
    - ignore PAM audit_log_acct_message warning triggered by atd, which is a known
      bug on various openSUSE/SLE releases
    - ignore yum messages about installs/updates/erasures of packages
    - make xinetd rules match all harmless log lines (there were some
      left), and make a second attempt at ignoring the messages about
      the unconfigured svnserve service.
* Thu May 28 2009
  - update to svn r89:
    - ignore more stuff from xinetd
* Thu May 28 2009
  - create *.local files if they are missing. There seems to be a
    scenario which makes them go away, even though the order of
    %preun/%post handling should be correct. It works correctly with
    rpm -Uhv, but maybe the (very old) yum I use has a bug here.
* Wed May 27 2009
  - add script /usr/share/logdigest/logdigest-all-ignores-autogeneration
    which is a little more sophisticated in creating the ignore file,
    can be run from %post, and can restart a running eddie daemon if
    the ignores have changed
* Wed May 27 2009
  - update to svn r87:
    - ignore su'ing to user vnstat
* Mon Apr 27 2009
  - don't remove empty /etc/logdigest/*.local files when updating. Do
    that only when removing the logdigest package from the system.
* Mon Apr 27 2009
  - update to svn r86:
    - ignore output from fsr (XFS filesystem optimizer)
    - ignore nagios, called from cron
    - don't log when crontabs are listed
