WatchFull Updated

WatchFull is a collection of programs, written in Perl, which assist Unix systems administrators in avoiding and responding to file system space exhaustion crises. WatchFull monitors file systems and reports when they fall below a specified percentage of free space. LogJam watches system and application log files (for example Web server access and error logs) and warns when they exceed a threshold size. Top40 scans a file system or directory tree and provides a list of the largest files within it.

I have just posted the first update to WatchFull since its initial release in 2000. Version 1.1 updates the source code to current Perl syntax, corrects several warning messages, and now runs in “use strict;” and “use warnings;” modes. The source code should be compatible with any recent version of Perl 5. The HTML documentation has been updated to XHTML 1.0 Strict, CSS3, and Unicode typography.
