Log Watch.

Hi,

We have implemented postfix as an internet mail backbone. The group which monitor this is separate from us. I wish to send the logwatch postfix mail component to them while retaining the remaining system details for us. I tried placing MailTo in the postfix.conf file /etc/log.d/conf/services however this hasnt helped. I havent found any useful doco that explains the whole logwatch configuration.

Any help would be good.

Robert.

Re: Log Watch.

Robert,

You can just print the postfix report to STDOUT and pipe that to mail (change ):

logwatch --print --service postfix | mail

I've completely rewritten the postfix filter. Its available at :


http://www.mikecappella.com/logwatch

It is also available in the logwatch CVS tree.

Re: Log Watch.

Hi,

This entry can be closed - ended up commenting out postfix logwatch entry - the mail group have their own monitoring reports anyway so would have duplicated that.
