Hi

Not totally confident i understand the question, you want to know what has been printed to the stdout?

A command like    cat /dev/stdout -less

Will show you its content. OR am i missing the issue here?

stdout will be what is printed on the screen.
If you want to see what was printer their earlier, scroll up.
If you want to capture what what a command prints, redirect it to a file or logger
command | tee command.log

If you cannot open the file you probably have no forwarder in place and then standard output is printed to the screen.

You can always check whichever process you want if you know the pid (e.g. $MYPID)

tail -f /proc/$MYPID/fd/1 # stdout
tail -f /proc/$MYPID/fd/2 # stderr

Open in new window


But it'll show only future output, not past output.
