You are running APF on your server, but sometimes you think “is APF running fine?”
This script sends you an email with APF satus.

Log in to your server as root

Create the script:
# nano

Put this on the file:

tail -200 /var/log/apf_log | mail -s “APF Status”

Save and Exit

Make it executable:
# chmod 755

Move it to “/etc/cron.daily” folder:
# mv /etc/cron.daily

You will receive now a daily email with APF status.
