Linux Based Tools

These Linux tools are available on the UCx server and accessible from the command line using the gui admin login and password credentials.  All commands are lower case and linux is a case sensitive operating system. (i.e. grep and Grep are not the same command)


ll - list the contents of a directory (same as ls -l)

cd - change directory cd /var/log/asterisk will change the working directory to /var/log/asterisk

cat - Display the contents of a file   cat /var/log/asterisk/full will display the entire file 

grep - search a file for a matching pattern of characters.  grep stamp /var/log/asterisk/full will search the full file for the word stamp and display that line from the file

more - display one page at a time

| - (vertical separator character)  this character will allow you to redirect the output of one command to the input of another command.  for example, you want to view the full file one page at a time   cat /var/log/asterisk/full | more  this command will read the full file and then redirect that output to the input of the more command which will display one screen of information at a time.  

man - This is the linux help system.  just type man and any command  such as man grep.  This will display the help screens for the grep command in a nicely formatted paged window
