It is fairly common to use log read arguments that automatically select a logfile with current date in it as in this example:
cat daily_ctmag_$(date +"%Y%m%d").log
which would cat the file daily_ctmag_20150722.log
Currently, we have to specify the exact filename without the shell automation which makes it impossible to track hundreds of log files that are rolled every midnight.
Using the aforementioned shell command causes the file not to be read at all. The logmon probe responds with nothing.
Is there a known workaround for this?
Thanks in advance!
