Hey There,

Gnu's version of grep has a -A argument

grep -A 3 yourString

-B works the same way, except the argument is the number of lines Before your match

to get your line and the 3 lines following.

You can also do it with sed.

Hope that helps

, Mike

On the sun, you could try using awk:

awk '/xxxx AAA xxxx/{ end=NR+3 }
NR <= end { print $0 }
NR > end { end = 0 }' file

If you don't want the xxxx AAA xxxx line printed:
awk '/xxxx AAA xxxx/{ end=NR+3; start=NR+1 }
NR <= end && NR >= start { print $0 }
NR > end { end = 0 }' simple

Code:
~> cat file
xxxx AAA xxxx

Total number of bytes = 56
total uplink rate = 27

abc
def

xxxx AAA xxxx

Total number of bytes =xx
total uplink rate = 30

agh
~> awk '/xxxx AAA xxxx/{ end=NR+3; start=NR+1 }
NR <= end && NR >= start { print $0 }
NR > end { end = 0 }' file

Total number of bytes = 56
total uplink rate = 27

Total number of bytes =xx
total uplink rate = 30
