SITE SETTINGS

 #######################################
 #         Mail::Toaster::Logs         #
 #######################################

This section lets you configure the logging behavior on your toaster. This section is used primarily by the maillogs script. Note that there are also settings which affect logs in toaster-watcher.conf

 logs_base         = /var/log/mail

If you store your logs somewhere else, change this. (Some people prefer /var/log/qmail, following "Life with Qmail")

 logs_supervise    = /var/qmail/supervise

The location of your supervise directory. The supervise directory contains control files for all supervised services available on your machine, even if they aren't running.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUPERVISE AND SERVICE DIRS

The supervise directory is where all the control files are created and where they'll live forever and ever, even if they aren't used. The supervise directory can be the same as the service directory, but it shouldn't be. Per Dan & LWQ docs, the service directory should exist elsewhere. On FreeBSD /var/service is the most appropriate location (man hier for details).

In the service directory you create symlinks to the supervised directories you want running.

A good example of this is that many toaster run courier-imap's pop3 daemon instead of qmails. Yet, the qmail pop3 daemons supervise directory is still build in /var/qmail/supervise but not symlinked in /var/service and thus not running. Switching from courier to qmail's is typically as easy as:

  pop3 stop 
  rm /usr/local/etc/rc.d/pop3.sh 
  ln -s /var/qmail/supervise/pop3 /var/service 

It's important to undertand the difference.

 logs_user         = qmaill
 logs_group        = qnofiles

What user and group should own the toaster logfiles?

 logs_pop3d        = qpop3d  # courier | qpop3d

The toaster used to use the courier pop3 server; now it uses the qmail pop3 server. If you are upgrading an older toaster and wish to continue using courier, make sure you change this.

 logs_isoqlog      = 1  # configure isoqlog first!

Will you process your logs with isoqlog? Make sure you heed the warning in the comment-- if you don't configure the isoqlog.conf file, but you leave this set to 1, bad things happen. If you haven't gotten around to configuring isoqlog, change this to 0 until you do. (MATT says: a default isoqlog file is now installed with reasonable defaults). If you have more than 50 domains, you'll have to set up a script that concatenates rcpthosts and morercpthosts to a new file for isoqlog to get its domain list from).

 logs_taifiles     = 1 

Today's logfiles will be in filenames timestamped in the tai64n format. For example, a file called @400000004030ff6b05921044.s was created at 2004-02-16 12:35:29.093458500. To view these filenames in a human readable format, go to your log directory and enter ls | tai64nlocal.

Be warned, if you disable this option, then qmailanalog processing will fail and your nightly qmail activity log will not work as you would hope and expect.

 logs_archive      = 1  

For example, the SMTP log file for February 14, 2004, is called 2004/02/14/smtplog.gz, unless you are looking at todays logs. Prior days log files are automatically compressed. This directory tree lives inside your logs_base directory. If you set this option to 0, old logs are not archived-- they are deleted.

 qmailanalog_bin = /usr/local/qmailanalog/bin

The directory to your qmailanalog bin files.

 logs_counters     = counters  

A directory inside your logs_base directory, which stores the counter files used by maillogs.

 logs_rbl_count    = smtp_rbl.txt
 logs_smtp_count   = smtp_auth.txt
 logs_send_count   = send.txt
 logs_pop3_count   = pop3.txt
 logs_imap_count   = imap.txt
 logs_spam_count   = spam.txt
 logs_virus_count  = virus.txt
 logs_web_count    = webmail.txt

The names of the counter files in the logs_counters directory.
