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 apf1.sh

Put this on the file:
#!/bin/bash

tail -200 /var/log/apf_log | mail -s “APF Status” you@yourdomain.com

Save and Exit

Make it executable:
# chmod 755 apfstatus.sh

Move it to “/etc/cron.daily” folder:
# mv apf1.sh /etc/cron.daily

You will receive now a daily email with APF status.
