tail multiple text files -> and get all into standard output
Posted on 2006-05-28
In one directory, there are multiple text files (log files)...
For each log, separated processes are appending logs in each.
Like to monitor in real time, easiest way is tail log, but not like to tail each log in separate telnet session, but like to have all log output into standard output (on telnet window).
Then thinking to use grep to get some results..
Is there any simple command? Like.... (it does not work but just like to show what I like to do..)
tail -f *20060529.log | grep ERROR
As far as I know, it may not be possible, but if somebody knows good way to do, would you please suggest?
