I run the following wmi query aginst NS client

nscp wmi --select "select Frequency_PerfTime from Win32_PerfRawData_CustomTiersCalculator_CustomTiersCalculator"

and the output looks like

| Frequency_PerfTime |
|--------------------|
| 2660000000         |


Is there a way so I can make it so the only output is 2660000000?

How it works: given the output
| Frequency_PerfTime |
|--------------------|
| 2660000000         |

Open in new window

discard all but the last line using tail --lines=1. Next use awk '{print $2}' to output only the 2nd non-space sequence in that line.
