Comparing and Evaluating

Hi Guys,

Good day ULF Smilie I hope you can help me again with my problem. I have a file which looks like this:
Command was launched from partition 0.

Executing command in server server3
Dec 18 21:31:12 AHM04 nseventmgr[9020]: EVENT-SET: event(102) additionalText(7/pmain)
Dec 18 21:31:13 AHM04 nseventmgr[9041]: EVENT-CLEAR: event(102) additionalText(7/pmain)
Dec 18 21:32:15 AHM04 nseventmgr[9636]: EVENT-SET: event(102) additionalText(7/pmain)
Dec 18 21:32:16 AHM04 nseventmgr[9697]: EVENT-CLEAR: event(102) additionalText(7/pmain)

Executing command in server backup-server

Executing command in server server8
Dec 17 22:38:24 AHM09 nseventmgr[19518]: EVENT-SET: event(121) additionalText(-1344)
Dec 17 22:38:34 AHM09 nseventmgr[19609]: EVENT-CLEAR: event(121) additionalText(-1344)
Dec 17 23:02:52 AHM09 nseventmgr[2373]: EVENT-SET: event(121) additionalText(-1344)
Dec 17 23:03:04 AHM09 nseventmgr[2506]: EVENT-CLEAR: event(121) additionalText(-1344)
Dec 17 23:07:30 AHM09 nseventmgr[5034]: EVENT-SET: event(121) additionalText(-1344)

Executing command in server server1

Executing command in server server9
Dec 18 12:26:15 AHM10 nseventmgr[1822]: EVENT-SET: event(102) additionalText(6/pmain)
Dec 18 12:26:16 AHM10 nseventmgr[1843]: EVENT-CLEAR: event(102) additionalText(6/pmain)
Dec 18 12:26:23 AHM10 nseventmgr[1928]: EVENT-SET: event(102) additionalText(6/pmain)
Dec 18 12:26:24 AHM10 nseventmgr[1989]: EVENT-CLEAR: event(102) additionalText(6/pmain)

As you can see, the file contains alarms per server, wherein:
if EVENT-SET - means an alarm has occurred
if EVENT-CLEAR - means alarm has been cleared

What I want in each server, the script/parser will evaluate each line in the file then if EVENT-SET is greater that EVENT-CLEAR meaning there's an alarm and we must check it, but if it is equal status is normal. Also, it will return an output something like this:
EVENT-SET in server1, please check
EVENT-SET in backup server, please check


---------- Post updated at 02:32 AM ---------- Previous update was at 01:44 AM ----------

FYI on my simple code:

awk '
/Executing command in server/ {curr_server=$NF}
NF==8 { gsub (":","",$6); if ($6~/EVENT-SET/) { num_set=num_set+1 }}
END {printf ("total number of EVENT-SET is %s in %s\n", num_set, curr_server)}' /tmp/ALARMS_Output.debug

But the problem is it just gives the total number of lines with EVENT-SET in all servers and returns only the name of the last server, see output below:
total number of EVENT-SET is 119 in server7

please advice...
# 2  
Use an associative array:
/Executing command in server/ {curr_server=$NF}
NF==8 { gsub (":","",$6); if ($6~/EVENT-SET/) { num_set[curr_server]++ }}
END { for (i in num_set) { printf ("total number of EVENT-SET is %s in %s\n", num_set[i], i) }}

Hi CarloM,

Thanks so much!

Hi CarloM,

How can I insert in the code to test in each server if EVENT-SET is greater than EVENT-CLEAR, then that's the time it will only prompt the user that an alarm has occurred else if they are equal status is ok.

Please advice, I've tried already several times but still I can't get the output that I want. Smilie

# 4  
Something like:
/Executing command in server/ {
$6~/EVENT-SET/ {
   for (i in num_set) {
      if (num_set[i] > num_clear[i]) {
         printf ("%d events not cleared on %s\n", num_set[i]-num_clear[i], i);

# 5  
Hi CarloM,

Finally! Yeah, thank you so much... I hope I can also help soon Smilie
