NAME

scanlogs - summarize INN log files.  

SYNOPSIS

scanlogs [ norotate ] [ nonn ]  

DESCRIPTION

Scanlogs summarizes the information recorded in the INN log files (see newslog(5)). By default, it also rotates and cleans out the logs. It is normally invoked by the news.daily(8) script.  

KEYWORDS

The following keywords are accepted:

norotate
Using this keyword disables the rotating and cleaning aspect of the log processing: the logs files are only scanned for information and no contents are altered.
nonn
Normally the nn log file is scanned and rotated. Using this keyword disables this function.

If scanlogs is invoked more than once a day, the ``norotate'' keyword should be used to prevent premature log cleaning.
