Can I tail the log on a Cisco Router? I have 'logging buffered 51200' and a debug running. I can see the packets with 'show log'. Can I tail this?
Sending to syslog is the better way to do, but here's a trick you might find useful:
You can do "show logging | begin regexp" and it will show you the log starting at any lines matching that regexp.
That way, if you have your logs being time-stamped (you do, right?) You can something like:
show logging | begin ^Sep 3*
(note there is a double space after "Sep" but this text editor eats it) and it will show you all logs starting from September 3rd, for example.
Requires some experimentation to get it right. :)
