Re: [Pulp-list] Multitail



Good find, Jay. I also find --mergeall flag super useful for merging Apache log files (*access_log/*error_log) in one window and '-s' for displaying logs in columns instead of rows.

For those of you who didn't see me geeking out over this in the chat
room, if you don't use multitail, give it a shot. It's in the Fedora
repos, so it's easy to install.

It allows you to tail multiple files at once (big surprise, I know). But
it's a huge help with Pulp, since you can tail pulp.log and
ssl_error_log at the same time when debugging things, since useful error
messages tend to appear in both. Also really useful when debugging
messaging related things since you can tail both the pulp gofer logs at
the same time without hogging up 90% of your workspace.

One really neat part is that I tend to hit enter a few times in a tail
to get some space between runs so I can easily tell them apart.
Multitail will put the spaces in all of its tails, so it's really easy
to correlate errors.

The help is pretty solid. I haven't poked around too much, but I know
'b' will pull up an individual log so you can scroll it. I saw some
stuff in there about searching across all tailed files at the same time too.
