Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

"Splitting files using awk and reading filename value from input data"

Post #302976264 by RudiC on Monday 27th of June 2016 07:16:02 AM

You won't get a user name from your for loop but a full path to a splitlog.usernamemod file, and you run multiple processes to get at the last entries.

I'm not sure I understand why you abstain from packing as much processing as possible into the awk script, piping its output (= last entry per user) into a while loop.

And, maybe the "further processing" could - to a large? extent - be included into the awk as well?

NAME
igawk - gawk with include files
SYNOPSIS
igawk [ all gawk options ] -f program-file [ -- ] file ... igawk [ all gawk options ] [ -- ] program-text file ...
DESCRIPTION
Igawk is a simple shell script that adds the ability to have ``include files'' to gawk(1). AWK programs for igawk are the same as for gawk, except that, in addition, you may have lines like @include getopt.awk in your program to include the file getopt.awk from either the current directory or one of the other directories in the search path.
OPTIONS
See gawk(1) for a full description of the AWK language and the options that gawk supports.
EXAMPLES
cat << EOF > test.awk @include getopt.awk BEGIN { while (getopt(ARGC, ARGV, "am:q") != -1) ... } EOF igawk -f test.awk
