LightSquid only updates manually

  • I have found that for some reason my LightSquid install only ever gets updated when I update it manually. I noticed this because I saw that openDNS was blocking access to sites that were not going into the logs that I see in LightSquid.

    On a related note if I try to go to the graph report in LightSquid I get a 500 error. I have tried setting the symlink suggested in some other threads that I have seen, but that didn't do anything for the 500 error.

    Version 1.2.3-RELEASE
    built on Sun Dec 6 23:21:36 EST 2009
    Platform pfSense

    Installed packages
    Backup 0.1.7
    Cron 0.2
    Fit123 1.0
    Lightsquid 1.7.1
    phpSysInfo 2.5.4
    squid 2.7.8_1

    If you need more info just ask as I don't know why this is happening or if it is something that I did wrong.

    More info added on 2010-05-13.

    I ran "pkg_delete lightsquid*", as mentioned in the following thread. I had already changed the symlink for "/usr/bin/perl" so that it pointed to "/usr/local/bin/perl" instead of "/usr/local/bin/perl5.10.1", as it had pointed earlier.,11594.30.html

    When I ran the following command "cat /var/log/lighttpd.error.log" I only got the following single line of output "2010-05-12 12:17:34: (log.c.172) server started".

    Edit #2 More info added on 2010-05-14.

    I noticed "jimp" mentioning running the following commands for the 500 error. So here they are. It comes from the same thread mentioned above.

    $ find / -name ""
    $ pkg_info | grep -i "gd-2*"
    gd-2.0.35,1         A graphics library for fast creation of images
    p5-GD-2.39          A perl5 interface to Gd Graphics Library version2
    $ cat /var/db/pkg/p5-GD-2.39/+REQUIRED_BY

    I have set squid to no longer rotate the logs which has made it so that I do get data from the previous day now. I'm glad to at least get some data.

    Here is the only cron job that I see that mentions squid.

    minute  	hour  	mday  	month  	wday  	who  	command
    15   	 0   	 *   	 *   	 *   	 root   	 /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/www/lightsquid/ yesterday  

  • i have similar problem. After upgrade frop 1.2.2 to 1.2.3,  and  install squid manually (i had problem with Per-host throttling)
    my LightSquid only updates manually

    crontab -l

    0 0 * * * /usr/local/sbin/squid -k rotate

    so crontab hasn't got job  /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/www/lightsquid/ yesterday
    but when i ran it from console  - nothing happened

    is there any solution?

  • Well I tested it over the weekend & I have it updating again. The issue is that you need to leave the "Log rotate" blank. For some reason LightSquid only checks the "/var/squid/log/access.log" file & ignores the "/var/squid/log/access.log.*" files that would be created by using setting "Log rotate" to something other than blank.

    Now to get the rest of the data in I just need to have some time when no one is using the Internet in the office so that I can merge files.

  • Don't worry more - bug is present.

  • Any ideas on the 500 error as I've tried everything I have seen so far & nothing has worked yet.

  • Ligtsquid cron fixed

    2 joecr
    Call from shell
    /usr/local/www/lightsquid/ today

    What messages?

  • When I go to http://pfsense/lightsquid/graph.cgi?year=2010&month=05&mode=month I get a 500 error. The title of the image is "Graph Report".

    I ran the command after having some traffic & I saw the numbers change like I normally would if I click on either the "Refresh now" button or the "Refresh full" button.

    I then clicked on the "Reinstall this package." & "Reinstall this package's GUI components.", next to Lightsquid in the "Installed packages" tab of the "System: Package Manager" page, in the hopes that would get it to read the old files, but I don't see any change on that respect.

    It still doesn't update earlier days that I have data for in the files "/var/squid/log/access.log.0", "/var/squid/log/access.log.1", "/var/squid/log/access.log.2", "/var/squid/log/access.log.3", & "/var/squid/log/access.log.4". Even if I click on the "Refresh full" button, which to me sounds like it is supposed to look through the files that I just mentioned. I only have access.log, access.log.0, access.log.1, access.log.2, access.log.3, & access.log.4 because I told squid to stop using the "Log rotate". I would like to be able to use "Log rotate" with squid so that I don't have a file that is massive from multiple days of monitoring. I'd like a new file every day & to have the data show up in lightsquid.

    Hey I just looked at the cron jobs I now have a new one. So not only do I have the original one but the new on as well.

    minute  	hour  	mday  	month  	wday  	who  	command
    */50   	 *   	 *   	 *   	 *   	 root   	 /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/www/lightsquid/ today
    15   	 0   	 *   	 *   	 *   	 root   	 /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/www/lightsquid/ yesterday

    Thank you for fixing the issue of the cron job not being made, but as I noted earlier I still have the 500 error when I try to view a monthly graph & it isn't reading info from the old log files that were rotated by squid.
