grep multiple files


Nice tip for when you need to look through more than 1 log, however the log names may be changing due to archiving purposes. They could be adding a date/time or number on to the filename, you can also use the * icon as a wildcard.

Added some examples below

 grep stuff some.access.log.[0-9]
 grep stuff some.access.log.*
