.Sh NAME
.Nm daily ,
.Nm daily.conf
.Nd daily maintenance
.Sh DESCRIPTION
The
.Pa /etc/daily
script is run, by default, every night on a
.Nx
system.
The
.Pa /etc/daily.conf
file specifies which of the standard
.Nm
services are performed.
.Pp
The variables described below can be set to
.Dq YES
or
.Dq NO
in the
.Pa /etc/daily.conf
file.
Most default to
.Dq YES ,
but not all.
Check the
.Pa /etc/defaults/daily.conf
file if you are in doubt.
(Note that you should never edit
.Pa /etc/defaults/daily.conf
directly, as it is often replaced during system upgrades.)
.Bl -tag -width fetch_pkg_vulnerabilities
.It Sy find_core
This runs
.Xr find 1
over the entire local filesystem, looking for core files.
.It Sy run_msgs
This runs
.Xr msgs 1
with the
.Fl c
argument.
.It Sy expire_news
This runs the
.Pa /etc/expire.news
script.
.It Sy purge_accounting
This ages accounting files in
.Pa /var/account .
.It Sy run_calendar
This runs
.Xr calendar 1
with the
.Fl a
argument.
.It Sy check_disks
This uses the
.Xr df 1
and
.Xr dump 8
to give disk status, and also reports failed
.Xr raid 4
components.
.It Sy show_remote_fs
In check_disks, show remote file systems, which are not reported on by
default.
.It Sy check_mailq
This runs
.Xr mailq 1 .
.It Sy check_network
This runs
.Xr netstat 1
with the
.Fl i
argument, and also checks the
.Xr rwhod 8
database, and runs
.Xr ruptime 1
if there are hosts in
.Pa /var/rwho .
.It Sy full_netstat
By default,
.Sy check_network
outputs a summarized version of the
.Xr netstat 1
report.
If a full version of the output run with the
.Fl inv
options is desired, set this variable.
.It Sy run_fsck
This runs
.Xr fsck 8
with the
.Fl n
option.
.It Sy run_rdist
This runs
.Xr rdist 1
with
.Pa /etc/Distfile .
.It Sy run_security
This runs the
.Pa /etc/security
script looking for possible security problems with the system.
.It Sy run_skeyaudit
Runs the
.Xr skeyaudit 1
program to check the S/Key database and informs users of S/Keys that
are about to expire.
.It Sy run_makemandb
If the
.Pa /etc/man.conf
file exists, runs the
.Xr makemandb 8
utility to update the
.Pa man.db
database for use by
.Xr apropos 1 .
.It Sy fetch_pkg_vulnerabilities
Refreshes the local database of package vulnerabilities.
See the settings in
.Xr security.conf 5
for details on the actual package checks.
.El
.Pp
The variables described below can be set to modify the tests:
.Bl -tag -width fetch_pkg_vulnerabilities
.It Sy find_core_ignore_fstypes
Lists filesystem types to ignore during the
.Sy find_core
phase.
Prefixing the type with a
.Sq \&!
inverts the match.
For example,
.Ql procfs !local
will ignore
.Ql procfs
type filesystems and filesystems that are not
.Ql local .
.It Sy find_core_ignore_paths
Lists paths to ignore during the
.Sy find_core
phase.
For example,
.Ql Pa /export
will not descend into any directories under the
.Ql Pa /export
hierarchy.
This, on a file server, allows to skip
user data while still scanning system files.
.It Sy run_fsck_flags
Extra options to be passed to
.Xr fsck 8
if
.Sy run_fsck
is enabled.
.It Sy send_empty_security
If set, the report generated by the
.Sy run_security
phase will always be sent, even if it is empty.
.It Sy pkgdb_dir
.Em DEPRECATED .
Please set
.Dv PKGDB_DIR
in
.Xr pkg_install.conf 5
instead.
.Pp
If defined, points to the location of the packages database.
Defaults to
.Pa /var/db/pkg .
