O...K..., but please recall: I didn't change the system default settings. So I am not the one who is running them. Worse yet, I find /etc/logwatch/conf/logwatch.conf is empty (well, only comments), and the man page for logwatch does not SAY what the default for '--range' is.
May I assume that the line in the email to root labeled. "Date Ranged Processed:..." answers this question?
By "email to root", I refer to the emails with subject "Logwatch for <insert machine name here>"
It appears that the --range argument is 1 day, and I now can no longer find npviewer.bin with its general protection fault in the logs for Sep 22-28. So I am almost ready to mark this thread 'solved'.
