I've installed squid 2.7 stable9 in centos 5.4 x32 bit. I've installed and configured it successfully, its working fine. I want to clear few doubts, for that your kind help is needed. Parallely, I've configured another server using binary rpms with same squid version (2.7 stable9). I found that it creates a /etc/logrotate.d/squid for rotating log files (access.log, cache.log, store.log). Which is properly rotating log files using compress, dateext and size options (i manually added the size option).
But after compiling and installing from source code, its automatically not created. I want to rotate the log files in the same way as it is doing when i install using binary rpms. Below logfile_rotate entry is present in my squid.conf file (in source code installation scenario) logfile_rotate 10 Below logfile_rotate entry is present in my squid.conf file which is commented (in binary rpm installation scenario) #logfile_rotate 10 I want to rotate the log files by size (as I've more than 200 users, these logfiles size increasing very fast, ie. approx 80 MB per hour), with compress and dateext option.
OS CentOS 5.4 I have a DNS server that is logging all named and dns requests to the chrooted named directory. By default named logs to /var/log/messages but I want to isolate all the dns queries and requests to separate files. I know I can add entries to /etc/syslog.conf to "roll" the logs and logrotate should pick them up but fuzzy as to the syntax. I don't know what "tag" to use in the first fieild. for example
# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher. # Don't log private authentication messages! *.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none/var/log/messages

I would like to monitor a RedHat via snmp. I would like to make available data via snmp. The data that I would like to graph are only present in logs file. Is it possible to parse data from applicative logs and have them available for my cacti server via snmp? I already monitor CPU, mem, and others with cacti using the standard MIB.What would be the logical step I would need to achieve that?
I Have RHEL4 running on IBM X3550 server, we request IBM support regarding issues with this server, they will request for IBM DSA logs. The logs are quite extensive and cover almost all server config & can identify hardware issues with drivers...etc. I want to know if there is a way to analysis those logs offline without sending them to IBM support?
I was wondering how could I specify for how long the logs will be kept. Rsyslog doesn't have such an option (at least I didn't find it).Do I have to use logrotate for this, or is there some other option?

We are forwarding logs (perl script executed logs) to one Red Hat Linux box. We have to get 97 logs for each time the script runs. But we see inconsistent number of logs coming to Linux box. Like one time we got 56, other time 3 , other time 43.. like this.. We are sure that 97 logs are being forwarded. Checked the Rsyslog.config filer any filters and couldn't see any filter dropping them. When we run the tcpdump, we can see 97 connections, but logs are not there in specified location.
Squid document says that Squid accepts only HTTP requests but speaks FTP on the server side when FTP object are requested.
We call Squid HTTP and FTP caching proxy server. Does it also caches FTP contents? Is it possible to configure FTP clients to use Squid cache? When we make an FTP request to an FTP site via Squid will it be bypassed?
I want to make a transparent squid proxy server in centos. The squid proxy version is 2.6 stable. I made a normal squid server but want to make it transparent so that users do not need to enter the proxy settings in web browser. Even i searched about this on google but not getting it properly.I have two lan cards on centos system. ETH1 used for LAN and ETH2 used for WAN. And in this squid.conf i written "http_port 172.16.31.1:3128 transparent" and i also added a rule in iptables which is "iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth1 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3128" but still i have to enter proxy settings at client's web browser to use internet

I ran a scan (clamscan -r --remove /home/) on my user's home directory yesterday & since I have so many users on my mail server, it takes a very long time to complete. I came back in this morning and realized that there were two infected files found during last nights scan:
I have been using Postfix since 2006 with no problems ever. Simple & rock solid however I was wondering what you guys use for monitoring all your email traffic and logs? Is there an application or utility you guys suggest using as a mail administrator to easily scan / view logs in a organized and clean view?
