Tripwire is configured to automatically scan the files on your frontend daily. This is accomplished via cron. To test the tripwire cron script, execute:
A Tripwire tab on your cluster's home page will indicate that tripwire is installed.
When the tripwire cron job runs, clicking on the tab will result will bring up the most recent tripwire report and a set of monthly archives of previous reports
When this cron script runs successfully, tripwire sends mail to root (default). The cron script also creates a web page which shows the most recent tripwire report and web-archives of previous reports.
To view the mail message, execute mail, then hit return at the & prompt. You'll see a mail message that looks similar to:

To have tripwire email its report to a different email address, run the command: rocks set host attr localhost tripwire_mail "address1 [address2]". For example, say you want the tripwire reports to go to firstname.lastname@example.org and root.
# rocks set host attr localhost tripwire_mail "email@example.com root@`hostname`"
To view the set of addresses for the Tripwire Daily Report:
# rocks list host attr localhost | grep tripwire_mail
