DESCRIPTIONlr_log2report reads a log file from STDIN or the specified argument and will output a formatted Lire report on STDOUT or in the output_file argument. The format of the log file is specified using the dlf_converter argument. Use the --help dlf-converters option to get a list of all currently available DLF converters.
In case the log is passed in a compressed format, it's uncompressed on the fly, using gzip(1).
WARNING: This command outputs binary data on the terminal for all output formats except txt and xml. You should redirect stdout to a file when using those output formats.
In the case where output format is html, the output_file argument will be interpreted as a directory name. This directory will get created if needed, and will hold the various html files. In case this argument is omitted, a tar(1) file should be output on STDOUT (but see the BUGS section).
WARNING: Running this command on big logfiles generally means you'll need lots of free diskspace. See Lire::LrCommand(3pm) for details.
EXAMPLESTo process a Postfix log and display the report as text, use
$ lr_log2report postfix /var/log/mail.log
To process a Postfix log and create an HTML report in a directory, use
$ lr_log2report -o html postfix /var/log/mail.log postfix-report
is specified, both logfile and output_file need to be specified. Specifying "-" (or "/dev/stdin") as logfile is supported. So this
$ tai64nfrac < /var/log/qmail-send/current | \ lr_log2report qmail --output html - /tmp/report
