NAME

Maplat::Worker::DirCleaner - Clean stale files from directories

SYNOPSIS

This module cleans out old/stale files from configured directories

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a simple directory cleaner for multiple directories. Currently, no recursive cleaning is done (we're working on that, stay tuned). Just configure the module, the actual cleaning is done automatically.

Configuration

        <module>
                <modname>dircleaner</modname>
                <pm>DirCleaner</pm>
                <options>
                        <reporting>reporting</reporting>
                        <memcache>memcache</memcache>
                        <db>maindb</db>
                        <limit>1000</limit>
                        <directory>
                                <path>/full/path/to/dir</path>
                                <maxage>8</maxage>
                        </directory>
                        ...
                        <directory>
                                <path>relative/path/to/dir</path>
                                <maxage>7</maxage>
                        </directory>
                </options>
        </module>

maxage is the maximum age in days the files are allowed to reside in the directory

limit denotes the limit of how many files to clean out in a single run. This option prevents the module of monopolizing harddisk IO.
