Next: The atail command Up: The acat command Previous: Syntax   Contents


The acat command reads from the specified cyclic log and outputs the contents to stdout.

Suppose a server pipes its stdout and stderr through the alog filter. The server log will be a cyclic log. The typical use of the acat command is to print the log when the server has encountered an error.
