Skipping to End of log files using SSH


I'm sitting here holding the down button, I'm trying to get to the end of it but it's never coming.

How do I get to the end of a log file without seeing all the stiff in it by pressing page down?

Any quick way to get to the end of the file using SSH?

Depends on what you mean exactly eg if you were in the vi/vim editor, then <shift>-g would do it.
Which tool are you using? NB: ssh is just a remote terminal/shell tool, so that's not what I'm asking.

Hi Chris, I'm using Putty SSH and VI. This is what I'm using to read the file. I hope that's what your asking for.

SHIFT-g should work in 'less' too but if your only intent is watching lines scroll by then 'tail -f /path/to/log' would be the easiest.
