Hi,

I have the below log. The last number in each line is my memory usage. I need to grep out this for each line and find the maximum. How do I do this?

almost perfect. seems to have a whitespace in the front. Can I somehow trim this?

If there is always a whitespace in front of the number in the inputfile you can omit "-F:"

awk '{print $NF}' /path/to/logfile | sort -n | tail -1

If youre not sure you could do

echo $(awk -F: '{print $NF}' /path/to/logfile | sort -n | tail -1)
