Cant remember a command?
Hi all, I need help with a command, well I can’t remember what it is. My situation is I need to test the new midband connection I have had installed. Before I move all our servers to the new connection I want to ensure that it is reliable. Now what I am doing is having a spare pc I have ping the gateway every second and piping the output to a log file. So that after a week I can check to ensure that it has sufficient uptime.
Ok so the command I can’t remember is one that allows me to view the last “x” amount of entries or lines in my log file. I have used this before I just can’t remember what it was. Now I know it used “tail” at the end to specify only show then end of the file. It was a bit like “cat” but it constantly refreshed it self.
Can anyone help me out here.
