I'm debugging a Linux application that allows remote jobs to be submitted, logging the output from each job in a new file. The log file paths conform to:
where the wild card represents the unique job number.
I want to be able to tail each job log, including new logs that are created after I issue the tail (or whatever) command. I thought I'd be able to do this using multitail, but I can't figure out the right set of parameters to use. For example,
multitail -q 1 "/joblogs/job_*/JOB.LOG"
seems to create a window for each new log file just the way I want, but it doesn't show any output in the file window.
Anyone know how to do this, either with multitail or another Linux tool ?
