IDM log archiver

0 Likes
Need to keep your Linux based IDM log files for troubleshooting?

This script zips your log files up, keeping a zip file for each day.



#!/bin/bash
cd $2
if [ -e $1 ] ; then
strFile=`date %d%m%y`
myHost=`hostname`
strFile=$strFile"-"$myHost".zip"
# echo $strFile
strTime=`date %H%M%S`
# echo $strTime
mv $1 $strTime$1
zip $strFile -q -9 -o -m $strTime$1
else
echo "file not found"
fi




Simply call the script passing the name of the log file you wish to archive and the path to your log files as command line parameters.

You can run this in your crontab, calling it every minute (or whatever period suites you) When the log file rolls over the _1.log file will be renamed with a time stamp and added to todays zip file. If the log file has not yet rolled the script just exits.

Example:

log_archiver.sh Driver1_1.log /IDMLOGS/

Enjoy!

Cheers

Jim
