Old logs in /opt/zimbra/zmstats

Postby mtk » Thu Jul 04, 2019 6:43 pm

Hi,

using Zimbra for quite some years, the installation seems to have stored several years of daily logs in /opt/zimbra/zmstats in folders like

Code: Select all

drwxr-x--- 2 zimbra zimbra     4096 Jan  2  2015 2015-01-01
drwxr-x--- 2 zimbra zimbra     4096 Jan  3  2015 2015-01-02
drwxr-x--- 2 zimbra zimbra     4096 Jan  4  2015 2015-01-03
drwxr-x--- 2 zimbra zimbra     4096 Jan  5  2015 2015-01-04
drwxr-x--- 2 zimbra zimbra     4096 Jan  6  2015 2015-01-05


Containing each:

Code: Select all

-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra 2026410 Jan  2  2015 allprocs.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra   75334 Jan  2  2015 cpu.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra    1036 Jan  2  2015 df.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra    9387 Jan  2  2015 fd.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra   28958 Jan  2  2015 io.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra   75379 Jan  2  2015 io-x.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra   34277 Jan  2  2015 ldap.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra   60481 Jan  2  2015 mailboxd.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra    7321 Jan  2  2015 mtaqueue.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra  449571 Jan  2  2015 mysql.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra   18031 Jan  2  2015 nginx.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra   69192 Jan  2  2015 proc.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra    4555 Jan  2  2015 soap.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra   15261 Jan  2  2015 sql.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra    4321 Jan  2  2015 threads.csv.gz
-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra  189198 Jan  2  2015 vm.csv.gz


Questions:
    - Can those folders simply be deleted?
    - Is there any flag for log rotation or purging, that I am missing?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Take a look at zmstat-cleanup which is a bash script:

Code: Select all

# su - zimbra
% /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstat-cleanup --help

Usage: /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstat-cleanup [-k <keep count>] [-h] [-l] [-p]

    -h|--help    Help/usage information
    -k|--keep    Number of archived copies of zmstat data to retain.
    -l|--list    Generate a listing of log dates archived.
    -p|--purge   Purge ALL archived zmstats data.


FYI... purge isn't doing anything sophisticated... finding a list directories and looping to delete each directory with /bin/rm -rf ... just historical data to look at

Probably should provide a usage for others in the future.... Here is an example of one method:

Code: Select all

su - zimbra

Add this to your zimbra's crontab if you wanted to retain a month or year, etc.
