Newsyslog?



  • does anybody know if newsyslog is included with pfsense 2.1_x64?
    i can see it in the cron entry ie /usr/bin/nice -n20 newsyslog
    but the system doesn't find newsyslog even though there is a /etc/newsyslog.conf with various options within it.

    it's obviously not working as i don't appear to have any log rotation going on eg maillog, maillog.0, etc even though there is an entry in the config file for this daily.
    i can't find newsyslog in the ports collection either



  • from what i've read, pfsense does not use newsyslog and instead uses clog. bit of a pity there as newsyslog offers log rotation.

    clog files don't need rotation, they never grow in size.

    The newsyslog binaries aren't there on the firewall, even if the file is in /etc  (most of our config files are in /var/etc actually)
