Shell script to check log files in real time via ssh

 / Published in: Bash

Check in real time changes to a log file. In this case, the file is created by date, one new one per day (a CodeIgniter log file), so some extra items were added to find the log file

  1. #!/bin/bash
  3. remoteuser=user_name
  4. remotecomputer=some_ip_address
  5. ssh -l "$remoteuser" "$remotecomputer" "tail -f path/to/log/files/log-`date +"%Y-%m-%d"`.php"
