  • This is an updated version that some one provided me via another "find" command to find files over a certain size. Keep in mind you may have to mess around with the print values depending on your system to get the correct output you want. This was tested on FC and Cent based servers. (thanks to berta for the update) Show Sample Output

  • This command basically adds up all of the individual instances processes and gives you a grand total for used memory in that instance alone.

grep compressed log files without extracting
accomplishes the same thing without unzipping the whole file, and while i have never seen a log.tar.gz file that was a binary, i will concede that it might happen, so add the -a in there: $zgrep -ia "string" log.tar.gz it's still shorter/easier to type...

Recursive search inside the content of files under current directory - then view the result paginated with 'less'
This command will traverse all of the folders and subfolders under current working directory. For every file inside it, it will do a search inside the content of the file for a specific term 'what'. Then it will print a list of the lines that contain that term (and match that pattern). Each matching line will be preceded with the path and name to the file and then the line number iside taht file wehre the pattern was found. Then the actual content of the matching lien will be printed. The output will be piped throug less, so that the user can scroll through it if it goes beyond the limits of the current display window.
