Logwatch 7 under CentOS/RHEL


I had the regular logwatch 5.2.2 running on my CentOS 3 box. For some legal reason, I keep 52 weeks worth of logs.

Logwatch started behaving weird lately.. parsing events being 1 year old, it was a random mess of yesterday’s events and last year logs.

I upgraded to Logwatch 7 (available at http://repo.securityteam.us/repository/)

It looks like it fixed the issue.

Thanks for reading this post!
