General :: Want To Write Script For Calculating Usage Of Software From Text File Contains Log
Sep 10, 2009
Actually i m new to scripting in Linux, we have RedHat Server Edition 4 in which different software licences are installed and software itself installed at client side. the usage of the software is recorded daily in a text file which is of format
I want to write a script that checks that for any OUT & IN, if utility, user and Client PC Name are same then subtract OUT Time from IN Time. This has to be done for each & every user and utility.Is there any GUI programming possible in Linux.
What originally seemed like an easy thing to calculate has given me a big headache. Perhaps someone can help me with my issue. I am trying to find, in particular, how much memory certain application processes are taking. The process always is the same name, main_server, but with an argument to tell it what to do when running as a daemon.
When running the following command against all "main_server" processes, it produces a result in megabytes based on the output of the rss field in 'ps'.
Code: CALC=0 for ea in `ps -e -orss=,args= | sort -b -k1,1n | pr -TW$COLUMNS | grep main_server | grep -v "grep main_server" |
Currently I am left scratching my head. For capacity planning purposes, it would be nice to know how many more 'main_server' processes could run on the system without causing it to swap. Knowing the buffer and cache usage will go down as running processes demand more memory, I prefer to look at the free memory excluding cache and buffers. However, since 'ps' is reporting the processes are using more memory than free reports is in use without those things, I have no way to know how many more processes the system can support. I played around with different fields in 'ps', such as vsize, size, etc, but with no luck in matching up any numbers.
I'm trying to create a script that will find the bandwidth usage of certain protocols only. For example, SMTP. I would like it to just return a number. Is there a known command/parameters to output something like this?
I want to write expdp output in a text file using a shell script
If i write like below:
It will write whatever is there in log file to text file
But, sometimes export fails with out start taking export (without generating log file) because of job already exists error. such times, we dont know about that error until we check manually... so i wrote like below:
But still it is not writing anything in to text file using above stmt...
I have a text file that contains a single word and I want to write a bash script that will read the word from the text file... The following is my incorrect attempt, as it assigns the name of the textfile to the variable as opposed to the word stored within the textfile:(assume I have a text file value.txt that has its contents a single word, say wordone)
Code: #!/bin/sh for f in value.txt do echo $f done
so the output of the above script is value.txt, however I want it to be wordone.to summarise: how do I assign the value of the word contained within a textfile to a variable?
I want to write a shell script which will simultaneously collect OS user information and write in an individual text files.Can anyone tell me the syntax of the script.N.B. The user name will be mentioned in an array within the shell script.
I am new to shell script and to this form as well, I did try to search for a similar post like mine here, but could not find one.
Here is what I'm trying to do:
I am trying to grep server logs to find a specific string and then capture the time stamp and the value of that grep string in them. The log file prints out messages on per sec basis.
My script is able to grep the server logs for the entire period of my load runs and then outputted it to a .csv file too.
Unfortunately this .csv file is too large to extract it on my PC and to generate graphs as it exceeds the excel limit. I need some help on how to read this .csv file in a shell script and then take an average on per min basis before I can export it out on my desktop and generate graphs for analysis. example of the out in my .csv file:
trying to learn how to write a bash script that will create a new text file named jimbola in my home directory. The file will need to be able to have the first and last name of Jim Bola included in it.
i am trying to write a program which will read input from a text file, check if each line contains any alphabets and then display a message imforming me if there is an alphabet in each line. My text file is formatted in this way...
Something very handy to do in a Linux shell, is manipulating files and strings - essentially parsing data. Write a utility which will scan in a text file and search and replace strings. We also want to keep track of how many strings we've replaced.
I know that my command would look like this: <utility name> <filename> <stringToSearchFor> <stringToReplaceWith> Code: #!/bin/bash
trying read serial COM port and want to write that received data to file, now its writing only one sentence, but i want to write full file which coming on serial port, as i'm sending file from hyper terminal and reading on linux pc, If i put while loop its not writing anything,without while loop its writing only one line and if send big file then application terminates and then writes to file.But i need do write any size which coming on serial port.Finally i want write full file which is coming on hyper terminal, after writing the file it has wait for next data. This is my code,
im trying to output a list of running processes via a shell script. At the moment i got this which outputs the processes to a text file called out.
echo $(ps aux) >>out
The problem is though, the processes are all just one big block of text which makes it hard to read. Does anyone know how to sort the output to a text file so that it prints to the text file at 1 process per line? I know its probably simple but im very new to linux.
Im just trying to write some script to caputre memory and cpu usage on SLES servers, I just wanna use "top |grep Mem" and "top |grep Cpu". when I ran the above command, it just keep going. i just want to get one line each for memory and cpu.
When I ls -l /etc/passwd, -rw-r--r-- 1 root root /etc/passwd When I login as myself, and rm /etc/passwd, it asks: rm: remove write-protected file '/etc/passwd'? If I say yes, will it actually delete the passwd file?
I was trying to get the status of memory usage and disk usage using sigar in windows and ubuntu. done this in windows by just copying the sigar library into jdk library. But i was unable to do so in ubuntu. I've copied the library to java-6-sun library but still can't run the program.
