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 . .El .Sh FILES .Bl -tag -width /etc/defaults/daily.conf -compact .It Pa /etc/daily daily maintenance script .It Pa /etc/daily.conf daily maintenance configuration .It Pa /etc/defaults/daily.conf default settings, overridden by .Pa /etc/daily.conf .It Pa /etc/daily.local local site additions to .Pa /etc/daily .El .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr monthly 5 , .Xr security.conf 5 , .Xr weekly 5 .Sh HISTORY The .Pa /etc/daily.conf file appeared in .Nx 1.3 .
