Hi all,

How can I write bash script that checks if mysqld is running.
I use netstat –tulpn | grep 3306, if the port exists that means mysqld is running.
I need to say if 3306 exist then echo 1 if not exit echo 0

#!/bin/bash
# declare STRING variable
STRING= netstat -tulpn | grep 3306

A powerful one-liner:

netstat -tulpn | grep 3306 | grep -v grep | wc -l

It will count number of lines generated by the command and will auto-echo 1 if line is present, 0 if there's no output.

grep -v grep insures grep itself won't generate a match.

you can try this

str=`netstat -tulpn | grep 3306`
if [ "$str" -eq "" ]
then
      echo "output is blank"
else
      echo "not blank"
fi

Simply do
#!/bin/bash
netstat -tulpn | grep 3306 >/dev/null || exit 1

if you really want to echo 0 or 1 rather than set the return value, then

netstat -tulpn | grep -q 3306 ; echo $?

will echo 1 is the netstat output includes 3306, 1 if it doesn't.

One concern here is if the number you are looking for appears within a longer string - if, for example, the port 53306 is being used, that would appear as "success" in the above test.  A better test would be:

netstat -tulpn | grep -q ":3306 " ; echo $?
0
