Hallo, Bartosz, meinte am 29.11.12 in squid zum Thema Re: [squid-users] How to set /etc/logrotate.d/squid to have good sarg reports?:

Yes, that may happen.

I've just written a quick and dirty script which deletes all sarg
directories which are older than 3 months. It's invoked from the "/etc/
cron.monthly" directory, it could be invoked from a simple cron job
The only thing you should change is "DocRoot".

#! /bin/bash
# loescht alte "sarg"-Verzeichnisse
# Helmut Hullen


touch -d 'now - 3 months' $sargRef || exit 1

for Verz in $DocRoot/*
    test -d $Verz || continue
    test -s $Verz/sarg-date || continue
    test $Verz/sarg-date -nt $sargRef && continue
    rm -rf $Verz

rm -f $sargRef

This script is independent from every logrotate mechanism.

Viele Gruesse!
