Overview

The /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/slurp_exim_mainlog imports all unarchived Exim exim_mainlog files in the /var/log/ directory into the eximstats database. Imports of the exim_mainlog files can only occur once every seven days. The script only imports files newer than Exim’s log retention setting. The default for this setting is 90 days.

Note:

This script ignores files without the .gz file extension.
