For some reason SARG has not generated the monthly reports for April and May 2009.
The daily reports for these months are there ok.

Discussion

  • Could it be that the squid log files were rotated before sarg had a chance to generate the reports ?

    Or did you stop the server when it should have generated the monthly reports ?

    Could you also double check that all the daily reports are really valid ? If one entry in one access.log file chokes sarg, any report containing that entry will be missing. If you have a weekly report, you could check if all the weeks are there.

    Do you have the monthly reports for June and Jully ?

    Can you run sarg manually to generate the missing reports and see if it outputs any error message ? You can add the -z and -x flags to have a more verbose output if it is necessary.

  • It could be produced by a conflict in the /tmp/sarg directory used by sarg as reported by adib729 in http://sourceforge.net/projects/sarg/forums/forum/363374/topic/3401861.

    By default, sarg always uses /tmp/sarg to store its temporary files but if cron starts sarg multiple times, there will be a conflict in that directory. I also experienced two missing monthly reports and my investigations lead me to that directory.

    You can fix this by asking sarg to use another directory with the -w option. For instance, in my cron.monthly, I use -w /tmp/sarg.monthy. In cron.weekly, I use -w /tmp/sarg.weekly, and so on.

    I have to wait until the month of November to see if it really solves the problem.
