General :: Pipe Kernel Messages To Another Process As They Occur

Apr 13, 2011

I have an OLED screen on my laptop that I have configured to show status information. The current driver I have installed in Linux for it is able to display messages by sending them to a script as an argument separated by spaces.Example: the command /opt/asusg50oled/utils/notify.sh Hi Everybody "Hello World" displays on the oled screen:

Hi
Everybody
Hello World

If another message is sent before the old ones disappear and it reverts to status info, it pushes off the top message. Example: less than 30 seconds after the previous example, /opt/asusg50oled/utils/notify.sh "Bananas have potassium" is executed:

Everybody
Hello World
Bananas have potassium

What I want to do is have kernel messages (the kind you see by running dmesg) forwarded to this script. For example, when I insert a USB drive, the following information would show on the OLED screen as they're logged:........

General :: Getting The Line Of String From Previous Pipe Output By Line Number?

Feb 8, 2010

After running the following command, I get:

[root@yukiko /]# find / -iname .bashrc
/home/clamav/.bashrc
/home/vpopmail/.bashrc
/etc/skel/.bashrc
/root/.bashrc

But I would like to have a command that prints a specific line by supplying the command with the line number, for example:

[root@yukiko /]# find / -iname .bashrc | getline(2)
/home/vpopmail/.bashrc

Is there such a command on CentOS?

Programming :: Getting The Name Of The Process That Sent Data To A Pipe?

Feb 16, 2011

I am trying to automate some directory naming when we're manually running some scripts and are using tee to direct the output to a file (log). Right now this is what we do

Code:

./some_script.sh 2>&1 | tee /home/user/some_dir/logs/manual/some_script_20110216_1628.log

As a matter of laziness and keeping the log files consistently named, I'd like to create a function to pipe it to so that it's doing all the naming How I envision the command running

Code:

./some_script.sh 2>&1 | myfunc

And what the logfile name should look like (and in the right directory)

Code:

some_script_20110216-1628.log

I was thinking of adding a function to our profile to handle this. Just in testing I was trying to stream line right on the command line, but I'm having some difficulty in getting the name of the script that is pushing data over the pipe. Here is what I've tried

Code:

./some_script.sh 2>&1 | tee $(cd ../logs/manual; pwd)/$0_$(date +%Y%m%d)-$(date +%H%M).log

but that created a file named

"bash_20110216-1628.log"

Programming :: Pipe Output To 2 Files But Not STDOUT?

Mar 24, 2011

I want to have the output of a program go to 2 different files but not going to standard out. Is there a way to do this in bash? I know that in Z shell its really easy. omething like: Code: echo "test" >> file1 >> file2 Would work. But in Bash it doesn't seem that easy. I know that tee will send the output to 2 files but it also sends it to STDOUT.Something like:Code: echo "test" | tee -a file1 file2 Would put the word "test" in file1, file2, and STDOUT. Is there a way to just send the output to file1 and file2?

General :: Locate Command To Include The External Hard Drive

Feb 10, 2010

I normally use the "locate" command to find files that I have on my local drive. However, if I wanted to do this for an external drive, how would I go about this?

From what little I know about Linux, I'm guessing that it creates a reference file from which it performs the search when the command is typed. If I'm right this is updated at a given interval or when "updatedb" is used?

As the external hard drive is not always mounted is it best to create another of these reference files and have a different command (e.g. locateext) or something? Or is it best to add the external hard drive's location to the list of files that get added with updatedb.

I'm running Fedora 11.

Programming :: BASH: Get PID Of First Command In Pipe

Aug 11, 2010

I understand that $! is the PID of a command. For example:

Code: #!/bin/bash
myprogram &
echo "PID of myprogram is $!"

I'd like to send the output of "myprogram" to both console and to a log file using the "tee" command but I also want to store the PID of "myprogam". Something like this:

Code: #!/bin/bash
myprogram | tee ./logfile &
echo "PID of myprogram is $!"

The problem is that $! is now the PID of "tee" rather than the PID of "myprogram".

Networking :: PING - Pipe 2 Versus Pipe 3

Apr 10, 2009

I'm doing ping between 2 RH servers through a VPN site2site tunnel and in some times I got in the result pipe 2 and another pipe 3 as I mark it in blue color below.

e.g.

64 bytes from 192.168.1.10: icmp_seq=0 ttl=128 time=0.229 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.10: icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=0.287 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.10: icmp_seq=2 ttl=128 time=0.278 ms

[code]....

What's the difference between pipe 2 and pipe 3 and what's the meaning of it?
