Skulker is a rules-based tool for log and temporary file management. It offers a wide range of facilities to help manage disk space, including compression, deletion, rotation, archiving, and directory reorganization. It provides dry-run facilities to test new rules, as well as detailed space reclaimed reporting.
Release Notes: Minor fixes to the implementation of the "impacted users" email messages are included. Changes and stability improvements for handling complex pattern matching are also present.
Release Notes: This release adds minor revisions to improve email impacted support, performance of ignore files, and handling of multi-line pattern matching.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability for key rules to specify a new argument: "email_impacted". This then delivers targeted emails to users whose files are impacted by the rule in question. This one extra facility allows Skulker to move from standard log file management to a more generic user-file facility, especially when "reportonly" rule types provide users with advance notice of files being reduced, removed, compressed, rotated, or organized in other ways.
Release Notes: This release adds support for the "group_by_directory" directive to alter the handling for recursive directory matching to limit lists of files to process on a per-directory basis, rather than the default of the complete matched list.
Release Notes: This release implements many enhancements on the outstanding list found on the Google Code page, including support for LINES and BLOCKS attributes for better attribute handling for files, implementation of "reportonly" functionality for the "rotate" and "organize" file management functions, capture of filesystem scanning information and display of per-rule information (files/directories scanned for a rule and the time taken to scan), and implementation of new functions to capture and check matching file checksums (this allows use of the Skulker pattern matching functionality to perform file integrity checking).
