Using VI - This is an easy enough for for the GURUS

Hi,

What is the command in vi to capture the line below with the IMSI value also.  I have a whole log full of these and I need to grep out the reject message with the IMSI associated with it?

Could you use grep to grab them and drop them into another file?

For instance

grep -e <keyword1> -e <keyword2> filename >> filename2

You could use IMSI and Mobility as keywords assuming that those are not used elsewhere in the file.

OK.  Thanks for that.

Say I have 20 files called log1, log2, log3 etc etc etc

I need to capture the IMSI value from each reject message in each log file with the time value also?

Can you help with this?

Are all of the files within the same directory? Are they the only files named log*? If so cd so that you are within that directory and run the command as

grep -e <keyword1> -e <keyword2> log* >> filename2

again us IMSI and MOBILITY as the keyword log* will grep all files that are named log with characters following it. Give the filename2 a name such as queryresults or something other than log.

Oooh I just noticed from you output.. Is this a Solaris box? If so the commands parameters could be different than what is available on a Linux box.

Sorry I should have noticed it from your Zone postings.

Try this and see if it works better.

egrep 'REJECT|IMSI' mobility_event_log.* >colut.txt

columcusackAuthor Commented:
ok, this is much better  :)

egrep 'REJECT|IMSI|Time' mobility_event_log.* > colout.txt

I'm just trying to include the TIME also....checking now, will let you know shortly...

Great! Glad to hear it. Now you can figure out how to automate it to run with a rotational log and you won't have to ever manually do it again. ;)
