Help Me - How to grep in multiple servers

Hi All,

I need help , Regarding the keyword search in multiple servers at a time . we are desiging a search website . we have a multiple servers and each of the server have 3 instances having Unix compressed files.Our requirement was we need to search the particular key word for eg. we need to search Prasad in all the servers .is there any way to search the keyword in all servers and all the instances at a time .

exact requirement we have the servers located in Mumbai , Bangalore , Chennai , Delhi and hyderabad each of the location like Mumbai have 3 instances with file name as voter.gz . i want to search the keyword Prasad in all servers in instances having voter.gz file . we need to display the servers and instances having name Prasad . we have the username and password for the connecting server. and proxy password also

Could any body please help me to reduce the time complexity of searching the files .

With Regards,
Prasad .

Is the keyword and fileset always the same? You could set up a cron-ob and send the results to a central server.

If your're designing a _real_ search website I humbly think that you have to revise your whole strategy because searching that way is completely inefficient and resource wasteful.

After saying that I can suggest a few possibilities working with what you have.

1) If you want to search from a workstation through all the servers through SSH, firstly I suggest you configure a simple PKI infrastructure (private/public key). With that, you avoid typing the remote server password each time. In the client you need to have running a ssh-agent to login in behaf of your own user.

After thar you could use something like this:

for server in [ mumbai bangalore chennai delhi hyderabad other-hostnames ]; do echo $server; ssh $server zcat /path/to/voter.gz | grep -l "keyword"; done

You have to rewrite the above one-liner to your exact needs.


A quick work around for a better solution should be a script that parses that compressed files extracting all keywords and populating a MySQL (or any other) database. You're searches will be a lot faster and consistence because you have all the info in a single repository.

You can try:
Code:
echo server1 server2 server3 ... | 
xargs -P 10 -I % ssh user@% grep "'regex'" remote-file-name

Otheus: a plain grep won't give any results if the file is compressed, that's why I suggested the use of zcat.
# 7  
oh right. well, given that he's got .gz file, he should expect to find "zgrep" working just fine.
