Hi,

I have a log file which has the following line repeated several times during a day:

2014-03-10 00:00:35.970 [80] Debug      HttpReceiverServlet            Incoming request url : http://10.129.65.23:7920/httpeventadapter/SP_ADD/httpAdapter/ST.TERMINAL_SWITCH query string ST.MSISDN=5567
.
.
2014-03-10 00:00:36.075 [80] Debug      HttpReceiverServlet            Incoming request url : http://10.129.65.23:7920/httpeventadapter/SP_ADD/httpAdapter/ST.TERMINAL_SWITCH query string ST.MSISDN=55494
.
.


So what I need to have an output of how many times does this line appears in the period of an hour...

Pls note that the line has in common the beggining of it.. the rest differs... so what I need is a sort of grep "Incoming request url" | wc -l and in the output something like this:

00:00  10000  <---- (number of times that the "Incoming request url"  appeared from 00:01 to 00:59)
.
04:00   20000
.
.
15:00   2000
16:00   4000

Until 23:00... is this possible to be done?

Im on Solaris 10.

Tks,
Joao

I got the wrong output...

awk '{ print $2 }' filename | awk -F":" '{ print $1 }' | sort | uniq -c
   2 EventId=2696257,
   2 EventId=2696259,
   2 EventId=2696265,
   2 EventId=2696268,
   2 EventId=2696271,
   2 EventId=2696274,

I grepped the "EventId=2696257" and saw that you got the wrong line..

I think you should take the date into account, in case the log file would span several days.

Try this:
nawk -F: '/Incoming request url/ {A[$1]+=1} END {for (n in A) print n, "->", A[n]}' log.txt | sort

Open in new window

If you really want to ignore the date:
nawk -F":| " '/Incoming request url/ {A[$2]+=1} END {for (n in A) print n, "->", A[n]}' log.txt | sort

Open in new window

Please note that using "nawk" instead of "awk" for this latter version is important under Solaris!

Perhaps this will help:
awk -F'[ :]' '/Incoming request url/{
  dt=$1" "$2; 
  if(k==dt){c+=1}
  else { if(c>0){print k" -> "c;}
  c=1;k=dt}
} END {print k" -> "c}' log.txt

Open in new window

I guess this simple one liner will do, unless I am missing some point
cut -d : -f 1,2 filename | sort | uniq -c

Open in new window

You can omit 'sort' if it is safe to assume that in log file time will always be ascending.

@c_kedar, Unfortunalely the one - liner does not count the 'number of times that the "Incoming request url"  appeared'
:p

I missed that requirement. It is simple to add, though:
grep "Incoming request url"  filename | cut -d : -f 1,2 | sort | uniq -c

Open in new window
