searching log files

#1 Post by joejames_786 » 15 Jan 2019 06:40

hi

someone pl help me.

I have a log file SERVER_ERROR.log which contain 100000 or more lines

i need a script that should read a file named SERVER_LIST.txt
which contain 2 columns of data ie.......

1 2

XX BACKUP
BX STORAGE
JX DATA
RE CARD
FD CUSTOMER
HH SERVER
....and so (around 100 servers)

the script should search the SERVER_ERROR.log file for occurrences of each server ID (column 1) and write it to a text file named
SORTED_ERROR_LOG.txt


ie....

XX BACKUP = 200
BX STORAGE = 12
JX DATA = 123
RE CARD = 220

..... and so on

please help me

What is the 200 for? The number lines found in the log file that begin with XX BACKUP?
What does "columns" mean? Are XX and BACKUP separated by a various number of spaces or always by the same number?

hi

1.the 2 columns are seperated by a single tab space


2. the number 200 is possible number of lines in the SERVER_ERROR.LOG file.

3. only the "ID" ie....(XX BX JX RE) is written in the SERVER_ERROR.log and not the server name
