Extract and write next every 1000 lines?

Recommended Posts

Hello Dears,

Please help:(

I have intrusionlogs.log file(Log file) which contains > 150k lines in it.

File structure:

Snippet from that file:

Intrusion attempt1 unixtime(somenumbers) browserstring remote host
Intrusion attempt2 unixtime(somenumbers) browserstring remote host
Intrusion attempt3 unixtime(somenumbers) browserstring remote host

This file generated by Mysql DB (using crontab) Something like this:

mysql -A  -H --tee=sessions.txt -h localhost -u mysqluser -pmysecretstrongpass -e "select attempt as 'Intrusion attempt',from_unixtime(time) as 'Unixtime',browser as 'browserstring',host as 'remote host' from instrusiontable order by time desc limit 0,1000">>intrusionlogsN.log

What i want to do:

Devide this file to N number to another files (say intrusion1k.log, intrusin2k.log and etc.) by EVERY next 1000 lines from intrusionlogs.log .

I mean read every 1000 lines from intrusionlogs.log and write to intrusion1k.log where k=1000 etc.

Guys,I'm really missing some logic in this task.Some calculation seems there.

I'm planning using filereadline() funcsion for this task.

Because _FileReadToArray() is not usefull in this situation for me (Very big log file)

Any direction please.How to realise every next 1000 lines thing?

I'm sorry again because i'm without code here.But really i can'not find logic for my self in this task.

Any directions please.

Thanks in advance.

untested but should be close to what you want:

$FileCnt = 1
$RecCnt = 0
$infile = FileOpen("inputlog.txt", 0)
$outfile = FileOpen("intrusion1k.log", 2)
; Check if file opened for reading OK
If $infile = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
; Read in lines of text until the EOF is reached
While 1
    $line = FileReadLine($infile)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
    $RecCnt += 1
    If $RecCnt > 1000 Then
        $FileCnt += 1
        $RecCnt = 1
        $outfile = FileOpen("intrusion1" & $FileCnt& "k.log", 2)
