Re: buffer space



Ok,

For some reason sort -r will not work with sort -t. --key=3,2n options

I tried:

sort -r -t. --key=3,2n
sort -t. -r --key=3,2n
sort -t. --key=3,2n -r

But....

zcat `ls /var/log/audit/*.gz | sort -t. --key=3,2n` | tac | ausearch -i

works like a champ.  Gotta luv linux..

Thnks..

Depending if you are using logrotate.d/audit  and how it numbers the

audit.log.1.gz

The sort below will but the list in exact order....

zcat `ls /var/log/audit/*.gz | sort -t. --key=3,2n` | ausearch -i

For this to work right, it has to be in descending order. So, add a -r to the sort command.
