    LogWatch results


    LogWatch show some messages like:

    (on Kernel)
    Dropped 452 packets on interface eth0
    From - 5 packets
    To - 5 packets
    Service: 42560 (tcp/42560) (** IN_TCP DROP **,eth0,none) - 5 packets
    and many others

    there's also others like:

    Logged 240 packets on interface eth0
    From - 224 packets
    To - 224 packets
    Service: ssh (tcp/22) (** SSH **,eth0,none) - 224 packets
    (on Named)
    **Unmatched Entries**
    client error sending response: host unreachable: 2 Time(s)
    and for Connections:

    Cp-Wrap[25127]: CP-Wrapper v1.2 resuming normal operations
    Cp-Wrap[25127]: Pushing "32008 COUNTDBS" to '/usr/local/cpanel/bin/mysqladmin' for UID: 32008
    Cp-Wrap[25127]: CP-Wrapper terminated without error
    Cp-Wrap[25130]: CP-Wrapper v1.2 resuming normal operations
    Cp-Wrap[25130]: Pushing "32008 GETDISK" to '/usr/local/cpanel/bin/mysqladmin' for UID: 32008
    Cp-Wrap[25130]: CP-Wrapper terminated without error
    Cp-Wrap[25138]: CP-Wrapper v1.2 resuming normal operations
    Cp-Wrap[25138]: Pushing "32008 LIST 0 0" to '/usr/local/cpanel/bin/ftpadmin' for UID: 32008
    are those messages "normal" (like i can ignore them)?
    if they are, isn't there a way to make logwatch don't show them?
    if they aren't, any ideas to fix them?

    ok... i think need a logwatch tutorial, but just found in italian on their site and the FAQ is offline... the man page doesn't teach about that

    If belongs to you or one of those with access to SSH, it looks fine.

    It is just a log of what packets are being dropped by your firewall. You are probably using APF and those are being logged to /var/log/messages. So when logwatch analyse it, those show up.
