Projects / Skulker


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.


Recent releases

    Release Notes: Improvements were made to macro handling, including support for environment variable replacement in configuration files and rule attributes where such changes were previously not allowed. Implicit directory creation for archive mode is now supported, allowing easier management of larger directory structures. A "prune" option is now supported to avoid snapshot or other virtual directories on storage arrays.

      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.

      •  25 Sep 2013 20:04

        Release Notes: This release adds minor revisions to improve email impacted support, performance of ignore files, and handling of multi-line pattern matching.

        •  15 Jul 2013 21:37

          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.

          •  22 Sep 2012 22:35

            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.
