Question verify ftp status is "good"

From reading prior "threads", my script looks like this:

#!/bin/ksh -x
ftpresults=`ftp -nv $ftphost1 << EOB
user $ftpuser $ftppwd
put $ftp_file $ft
put $ftp_file $ft1
ftp_ctr=`echo $ftpresults | grep "226 Transfer complete" | wc -l`
echo $ftp_ctr
If [ $ftp_ctr = 2 ]

I want to make sure that I have successfully ftp'd two files. The $ftp_ctr returns 1; while it should be 2. Any ideas why this code only returns 1 and not 2. I ftp'd two files, there are two instances of "226 Transfer complete" in the variable $ftp_ctr.

Also, is there a better way to check for a successful ftp?

Thanks in advance for your help! This site is great!

I'm betting that because you are putting all the information into a variable, that it is all one line - since you are counting how many LINES have the successful transfer, it's only 1 everytime (although there are two occurances in the one line).

The other problem is if you ftp to a site that has a huge banner before you ever do a login, all of that is saved into your variable. Possible that you would overload it and your script would bomb out and you would never know why.

Re: verify ftp status is "good"

Try double quotes around the results:
ftp_ctr=`echo "$ftpresults" | grep "226 Transfer complete" | wc -l`

remote_file_size=`grep $file file.log | awk ' { print $5 } '`
local_file_size=`l | grep $file | awk ' { print $5 } '`

echo "remote size $remote_file_size local size $local_file_size"
if [ $remote_file_size = $local_file_size ] ; then
mail -s "File Transfer Complete" jamison < ftp.log
/otl/otlcap/bin/cdpager 0011
if [ $remote_file_size != $local_file_size ] ; then
mail -s "File Transfer Failed" jamison < honda_ftp.log
/otl/otlcap/bin/cdpager 0010

i grep the file size on both their system and mine, compare them all, then i echo out a message, email me a message, and also page me. when dealing with 400+ meg files its nice to be alerted no matter where i am
