I am not so comfortable in Linux. When i want to view the particular log file for the date or any particular VS for a time how do i identify the right log file in the /var/log folder
(tmos)# run util bash
~# cd /var/log
~# cat ltm
or you can use
~# zcat ltm.1.gz
zcat is to see within .gz compressed files. This might help.
sed -n '/Jun 17 13:39:54/ , /Jun 18 10:50:28/p' DESIREDLOG.log
Make the date format match your desired date / system times. You can pipe this in a file for later as well.
Can you pipe it to a file within that /var/log directory as a .txt file? I as because I would like to be able to SCP it off F5 to my box. Will the .txt file that was created from the zcat pipe be viewable in notepad then?
Yes to your question. You can also export the .gz file and open it in your client machine.
