I want to find one particular number in the Asterisk logs. It is 312-402-4616. I thought that typing: cat full|grep “312-402-4616” would work. But all that happens is I get a green bblock cursor as if it’s waiting for something. Can someone help out a total newbie?
grep full “312-402-4616”
you can get all the grep help you want by typing man grep at the linux prompt.
It’s grep string filename
If you go to the log directory ‘cd /ver/log/asterisk’ then ‘grep “312-402-4616” *’ will check every file in the current directory. If you change the * for full the current log will be searched for pattern defined in the string.
you are correct. Thanks for correcting my typo. It’s not like I don’t use the command 10 times a day for other things.
Thanks for the help, guys!
