Current Session Command


Dear All,

I want to display the command related to current session in Redhat Linux 5.
Below history command display all the command in ~/.bash_history file.

$history

My requirement is the command executed in my current session.I mean to say.

Suppose after log in as root i executed

df -TH
pgrep jboss
pgrep smon
pgrep pmon
pgrep ftpd

Is there any procedure which will display only above FIVE(5) command in my current session.

Thanks and Regards
Monoj Das

Hi monojcool,

Do you mean, you want to get the list of commands executed by some other user?

When you switch to a different user, the commands history gets saved in that user's ~/.bash_history file. Even before exiting the session, you can invoke history cmd to get a list of all cmds invoked.

check out this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-limit-775909/

or try this:

Change bash history file size

If you want to change bash history file size open up your .bashrc using the following command from your terminal

gedit ~/.bashrc

Now add the following line at the top

export HISTFILESIZE=3000

Save and exit the file
