Re: i want to print one log file with time and date

Is there anything wrong with the simple method of

 

date > /home/raj/ file

vmstat >> /home/raj/ file

Re: i want to print one log file with time and date

Or do you want the date stamp in the name of the file?

 

vmstat > /home/raj/file`date`

Hi:

 

And if you want to tag every line with a date stamp, you could do:

 

vmstat | while read LINE
do
    echo "$(date '+%m/%d/%Y') ${LINE}"
done 

 ...which written on a command line is:

 

vmstat|while read LINE; do echo "$(date '+%m/%d/%Y') ${LINE}"; done 

Regards!
