Comment 2 David Rees 2006-11-27 19:57:34 EST
We are also seeing some logwatch postfix noise under RHEL 4 with lines like this:

statistics: start interval Nov 21 00:00:02
statistics: domain lookup hits=0 miss=1 success=0%
statistics: address lookup hits=0 miss=1 success=0%
statistics: max simultaneous domains=1 addresses=1 connection=1

and

certificate verification failed for firewall.example.com: num=18:self signed
certificate
Server certificate could not be verified

The certificate warnings get very noisy on a busy postfix install which sends a
significant number of messages to machines with self signed certificates.

Ivana, these problems have been resolved in the latest postfix filter, included
with logwatch 7.3.4.
Comment 9 Ivana Varekova 2007-10-26 05:09:34 EDT
Putting on the proposed list.
