display systemd log entries for sshd using "no-pager" (a bit like in pre-systemd: grep sshd /var/log/messages)

# journalctl -u sshd --no-pager # display sshd log entries
In pre-systemd systems, something like: "# grep sshd /var/log/messages" would display log events in /var/log/messages containing "sshd". # journalctl -u sshd --no-pager The above command displays similar results for systemd systems. (Note that this needs to be run with root permissions to access the log data.)

What Others Think

Do we need really need command examples of things that can be easily discovered by reading the man pages?

@tatsh the logical conclusion of which is don't bother with commandlinefu at all: just go RTFM. :-) For me, commandlinefu is another learning resource. I don't really care if an entry here is also in the man pages.
