Wink Find command, or logrotate utility

That is easy,

Google for find command examples on searching for files older then 30 days:

find /storage/current/dbdumps/ -type f -mtime +30 -print | xargs -I {} mv {} /storage/archive/dbdumps

or logrotate (build-in Linux utility) which does all of it for you including clean-up :-)

Hi LittleMaster,

Here is a script I use to take the backup of my servers' logs monthly. You can take a look at this script and can configure according to your need:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
ssh <dest. server ip> 'mkdir /logs/Linux_Server_Logs/proxy_logs/$(date -d yesterday +%b-%Y)'

#### No need for exit since the SSH session terminates after the command completion ####

rsync -avze ssh /var/log/* root@<dest. server ip>:/logs/Linux_Server_Logs/proxy_logs/$(date -d yesterday +%b-%Y)/

#### cd /root/ eliminated and put in the tar command ####
#### Two commands combined into one so they execute one after an other if the first one is successful. ####

ssh <dest. server ip> 'cd /logs/Linux_Server_Logs/proxy_logs && tar -zvcf $(date -d yesterday +%b-%Y).tar.gz $(date -d yesterday +%b-%Y) && rm -rf $(date -d yesterday +%b-%Y)'
This script first login to destination server ip and create a directory of previous month's date name.
After that rsync command copies the mentioned logs from source to destination path.
Then client again ssh to server ip to compress the logs directory.

Good Luck!

Hi
In your script you have been backuping up the data to remote server. Im my server filesystem /data utilised 100 % of its utility and i have root partition with just 5 % utilised .So im trying out to find the log of /data and compress in tar .gz format to /root filesystem


find /data/*.logs -type f -mtime +30 -print | xargs -I {} mv {} -exec .tar.gz /root/logbkup/$date.tar.gz


Im trying out the above command But it never works.thanks for sharing your script really it help when i could take the log backup to remote destination server

LittleMaster,

The script given by arun is the correct one. You can try out this.
