SYNOPSIS

clearxs [-d-| -m -| -T -| -x yyyymmdd]

DESCRIPTION

'clearxs' is a program that you should install in a cron(1) table. What it does is clear some of the fields in the WWW counter file every night. This is so that the counter can assume three values: a day counter, a month counter and a total counter. This program resets the day counter to 0 every day and the month counter to 0 every first of the month.

The option controls which counters should be cleared:
-d This makes the program clear all the day counters, but leaves the other counters as they were. This option should be used every night.
-m This makes the program clear the day and the month counter. The total counter is left as it was. This should be run by cron every first of the month.
-T Clears all the counters. Do not use...
-x yyyymmdd
  Expunge counters that have not been used since the given day. This will remove historical data from disk - use with care.

EXAMPLES

The following can be used as a crontab(5) entry:
0       0       2-31    *       *       root    clearxs -d
0       0       1       *       *       root    clearxs -m
