Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Build Status


A cookbook for installing and configuring ClamAV. Components to be installed/enabled are accessible as attributes.


  • A RHEL/CentOS/Scientific, Debian/Ubuntu, or compatible OS


Pretty much everything offered as options for ClamAV is configurable. Some attributes that one might commonly want to override:

default["clamav"]["clamd"]["enabled"] = false
default["clamav"]["freshclam"]["enabled"] = false

Whether or not the ClamAV daemons should be running

default["clamav"]["version"] = "0.97.6<VARIES_BY_OS>"

The version of the ClamAV packages to install

default["clamav"]["dev_package"] = false

Whether to install the appropriate ClamAV development package

default["clamav"]["clamd"]["log_file"] = "/var/log/clamav/clamd.log"
default["clamav"]["clamd"]["logrotate_frequency"] = "daily"
default["clamav"]["clamd"]["logrotate_rotations"] = 7 
default["clamav"]["clamd"]["log_file_unlock"] = "no"
default["clamav"]["clamd"]["log_file_max_size"] = "1M"
default["clamav"]["clamd"]["log_time"] = "no"
default["clamav"]["clamd"]["log_clean"] = "no"
default["clamav"]["clamd"]["log_syslog"] = "no"
default["clamav"]["clamd"]["log_facility"] = nil 
default["clamav"]["clamd"]["log_verbose"] = "no"
default["clamav"]["freshclam"]["update_log_file"] = "/var/log/clamav/freshclam.log"
default["clamav"]["freshclam"]["logrotate_frequency"] = "daily"
default["clamav"]["freshclam"]["logrotate_rotations"] = 7
default["clamav"]["freshclam"]["log_file_max_size"] = "1M"
default["clamav"]["freshclam"]["log_time"] = "no"
default["clamav"]["freshclam"]["log_verbose"] = "no"
default["clamav"]["freshclam"]["log_syslog"] = "no"
default["clamav"]["freshclam"]["log_facility"] = nil 

Log file/syslog facility logging options

default['clamav']['scan']['script']['enable'] = false
default['clamav']['scan']['minimal']['enable'] = false
default['clamav']['scan']['full']['enable'] = false

Optionally enable a daily minimum virus scan and/or a weekly virus scan of the full filesystem.

ClamAV has many other options. See the attribute files and ClamAV documentation for details.


Nothing special. Override the default attributes as you see fit and go to town!
