NAME

tmpreaper.conf - defines parameters for daily run of tmpreaper
 

DESCRIPTION

tmpreaper is run daily via the /etc/cron.daily/tmpreaper script. Its behaviour can be tuned via the /etc/tmpreaper.conf file. This file can contain settings entries to override the defaults in the cron.daily script itself. These settings are:
 
TMPREAPER_TIME
the max. age of files before they're removed. Default:
 
TMPREAPER_TIME=7d
 
TMPREAPER_PROTECT_EXTRA
extra patterns that you may want to protect. Example:
 
TMPREAPER_PROTECT_EXTRA='/tmp/isdnctrl* /tmp/important*'
 
Don't forget to enclose the patterns in quotes, like above.
 
TMPREAPER_DIRS
the directories to clean up.
 
NEVER supply / here! That will wipe most of your system!
 
Example:
 
TMPREAPER_DIRS='/tmp/. /var/tmp/.'
 
Again, don't forget to enclose the patterns in quotes, like above.
 
TMPREAPER_DELAY
defines the maximum (randomized) delay before starting processing. This is passed as the --delay parameter.
 
TMPREAPER_ADDITIONALOPTIONS
defines any additional parameters you want to pass to the tmpreaper program, e.g. --all
