Housekeeping DCC

Post by henk » 18 Aug 2017 09:52

After a fesh install of the latest efa version (eFa VMware OVF), I noticed the massive number of files in /var/dcc/log.

In the previous versions there was a daily cronjob in:
[root@efa cron.daily]# ls -l
total 56
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 26 May 25 2015 cron-dccd -> /var/dcc/libexec/cron-dccd

In the latest version, this job is moved to a monthly cron job:
[root@efa cron.monthly]# ls -l
total 8
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 26 May 24 12:15 cron-dccd -> /var/dcc/libexec/cron-dccd
-rwx------. 1 root root 1151 May 24 12:16 EFA-Monthly-cron
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 111 Nov 23 2013 readahead-monthly.cron

Should I move this job to the daily cron or is there a specific reason to do this on a monthly basis?

I'd imagine it should be okay to do that.
Version eFa 4.0.2 now available!
