I made this script as a reply to a question on a thread before. The accidentally simplified complexity of it amazes me so I thought that it would be nice to post this on a blog as well. Original thread:

The script runs and manages a service (tcpdump). It could also automatically delete files older than C days, and reduce the size of a logfile if it's already larger than N bytes....
