|If you new to ClamD on Linux then here is some hints to how to better monitor what the ClamD server is doing.|
First ClamDtop, on Linux platform the task manager is call "top" and the ClamD dev. team has made there own version of "top" for the ClamD server and to start it, simply type ClamDtop and hit Enter in the console
If you have more then one ClamD server then you can connect to more then one but the interface change abit.
just type "clamdtop 10.20.3.2 10.20.11.144" on the console and the 10.20.x.x is the ip numbers of my two ClamD servers
And as you can see in this sample is that one of my ClamD server is running a old database version, so by this it is easy to get the status of the ClamD servers and the status of them
You can also monitor the ClamD.log file in live mode and see what it detects
type this "tail -f -s 1 -n 50 /var/log/clamav/clamav.log"
And you will see some thing like this
To see the log from the database update util there is call "freshclam", you can then do to things.
If the freshclam service is started then look in the log file by typing this "tail -f -s 1 -n 50 /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log"
If the freshclam is not running and you like to monitor it from the command line then just "freshclam --debug" and it will output all status to the console.
This was just some starter hints from me and please do not ask me any Linux questions as i am just windows admin.
