Let me try this again..

I have the following:
sed -n "s/ns1://g;s/:ns1//g;/signin xmlns/,/signin/p;/\<signin.*/,/<\/signin>/{/\<orgName>/s/\<orgName><*/orgName>/};{/\<userName>/s/\<userName>[^m][^o][^n][^i][^t][^o][^r][^A][^c][^c][^t][^<]*/userName>/};{s/\<orgName>/<\/orgName>/}" "Apache_log" | gawk "/orgName/" { print substr($1,10,length($1)-19) }"|sort|uniq -c

Open in new window

However, I am wanting to change the output of uniq -c from:

Awesome!  Now, just need to figure out to get the top 5 lines..

gawk "/orgName/ { print substr($1,10,length($1)-19) }"  logfile | sort | uniq -c | gawk "{ print $2,$1}" | sed "s/\([0-9]\) /\1,/" | sort -r -n

Open in new window

And this now works, but now I need to just show the top five counts from the results.
