Logwatch doesn't work from cron: tip 
The older version of logwatch does not require any additional parameters. Now, at least --print, --detail and --range parameter should be specified.


logwatch --print --detail Med --archives --range Yesterday



--detail level
This is the detail level of the report. level can be a positive integer, or high, med, low, which correspond to the integers 10, 5, and 0, repectively

--range range
You can specify a date-range to process. Common ranges are Yesterday, Today, All, and Help. Additional options are listed when invoked with the Help parameter.

--archives
Each log-file-group has basic logfiles (i.e. /var/log/messages) as well as archives (i.e. /var/log/messages.? or /var/log/messages.?.gz). When used with "--range
all", this option will make Logwatch search through the archives in addition to the regular logfiles. For other values of --range, Logwatch will search the appro-
priate archived logs.

List directory in Windows XP to notepad 
To add list directory option in the scroll-down menu follow the instructions on Microsof page. Instead of the original text which is intended to send the output to print use:


@echo off
dir %1 /-p /o:gn > "%temp%\Listing"
start /w notepad "%temp%\Listing"
del "%temp%\Listing"
exit

Linux: Create RAID 
Create partition layout on /dev/sdb using fdisk. Label the primary partition for RAID as fd (Linux raid auto).


Copy partition layout from sdb to sdc and so forth:
# sfdisk -d /dev/sdb | sfdisk /dev/sdc


Let the kernel probe the new partitions:

# partprobe


Create RAID5 from sd[bcde]1. The -a yes instructs mdadm to create the device file if needed, possibly allocating an unused minor number:

# mdadm -C -a yes /dev/md0 --level=5 --raid-devices=4 /dev/sdb1 \ 
/dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1 /dev/sde1


Or create RAID0 (just change the --level):
# mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=raid0 --raid-devices=4 /dev/sdb1 \
/dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1 /dev/sde1


Add a disk to the existing raid5 array. The disk will be added as a spare:

 # mdadm --add /dev/md1 /dev/sda8 


To make disk regular part of an array (disk will not longer be a spare):

 # mdadm --grow /dev/md1 --raid-devices=4 


Resize the filesystem:

 # resize2fs /dev/md1 


Check the status og the newly created RAID:
# cat /proc/mdstat


Detailed statistics about your RAID:
# mdadm --misc --detail --test /dev/md0


Run backgroudn monitor of your RAID setup with mdadm. Add the RAID monitoring into /etc/rc.local. Linux box will mail you an message when the thing goes wrong.

/sbin/mdadm --monitor --mail=root@localhost \
--delay=300 /dev/md0 /dev/md1 &


Or enable monitoring with daemon:
# chkconfig mdmonitor on
# echo "MAILADDR root@mydomain.tld " >> /etc/mdadm.conf
# /etc/init.d/mdmonitor start


To test if the background monitoring works generate a test alert.
# mdadm --monitor /dev/md0 --test


Remove failed disk from the array:


# mdadm /dev/md1 -r /dev/sdc2


Put the disk back:


# mdadm /dev/md1 -a /dev/sdc2



Check the /etm/mdadm.conf after building raid. If the /etc/mdadm.conf is empty then you can regenerate:
mdadm --detail --scan > /etc/mdadm.conf


If the radid is not visible after reboot:
# mdadm --assemble /dev/md0 /dev/sd[e-h]
or
# mdadm -A -s (-s scan)


Stop the array (f.x. rebuilding array):
# mdadm --manage -S /dev/md0


Detailed info about /dev/md0:
# mdadm --detail /dev/md0


If you want the mirrored rootdisks will ableo to boot even with second mirror then you have to write the boot loader as well to the second disk. Some distros does not do that.

# cat /proc/mdstat 
Personalities : [raid1]
md1 : active raid1 hdd2[1] hdc2[0]
2048192 blocks [2/2] [UU]

md2 : active raid1 hdd3[1] hdc3[0]
16546880 blocks [2/2] [UU]

md0 : active raid1 hdd1[1] hdc1[0]
20482752 blocks [2/2] [UU]

# cat /etc/grub.conf | grep "root (" | uniq
root (hd0,0)


Then run "grub" and type:

grub> root (hd1,0); setup (hd1)

To apply bootloader.

Zero supeblock:
# mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdb


Filesystem benchmarking tool bonnie++ on SourceForge.org + RMP bonnie++ for CentOS.
