Unix Tip #4269- November 18, 2012

MONITOR WITH TAIL


Use tail with the -f option to monitor a file
in real time. This useful for monitoring for
errors, debugging issues, or just watch the
current activity taking place.

For Example:
# tail -f /var/log/messages
# tail -f /usr/local/apache/logs/access_logs
