Everybody have the same problem: how to deal with old files, logs, temporal files to archive them (compress, store in alternate locations), delete unneeded, etc. them
Specially if you have to deal with a lot of home-brew and third-party software and tools, that basically fill the disk do not care about their logs/temp files.
Now I am using my own shell scripts using find, logrotate, tar, etc. But everything is too ad-hoc for my taste, and not efficient at all.
I would love some kind of generic tool, based on patterns and rules/actions that will allow define actions on the files based on their name, age, etc.
I want to write it, but I am sure that somewhere wrote something: Do you know any?
