Argus is a network-monitoring-tool.
Take a look at /usr/doc/packages/README* for details.

Please change the variables in /etc/sysconfig/argus if you need.

A daily restart-script may look like this:

----------------------------------[snip]---------------------------------
#!/bin/sh

rcargus stop
mv /var/log/argus.log /var/log/argus.`date +"%y%m%d"`.log
gzip -9 /var/log/argus.`date +"%y%m%d"`.log
rcargus start
----------------------------------[snip]---------------------------------

you may copy it to /root/bin/argus_restart and add the following to your
/etc/crontab:

----------------------------------[snip]---------------------------------
50 17 * * * root /root/bin/argus_restart
----------------------------------[snip]---------------------------------

if you want to restart argus at 17:50 (5:50pm).

Use the tools 'ra' and 'services' to take a look in your captured
argus-data.
