The IML CLEANUP simply makes a splitting of logic and configuration data. It is easier to generate a small config file (especially if you use automation tools like puppet, ansible or chef) then handling several cleanup scripts.
How to get it work:
- In the /etc/imlcleanup.d/ you can put (as many) configfiles you want
- a shell script loops over all config files and performs the actions of all conf files.
- you additionally need to create a cronjob to execute this script regulary (i.e. once per day)
