Experts ! I am a linux newbie . I have a large log file whcih is around 2.5 GB on a linux server. I want to search for an event which got only few lines of text within that log file . How can I search or extract that event from that log file .
I am afraid to open this log file with text editors like vi or nano directly from the server since it is in production. i will be in trouble if my server freezes.
