Here is something that I had to do in couple of hours to check the logs. The problem was the log file was printing the Received and Sent message in the hex format. I had to verify if the messages were correct. So here is how to do it.
open(FP, ”<$ARGV”)|| die ”File $ARGV does not exist”;
while ($line =
if ($line =~ /(Received :)|(Sending :)/)
@words = split(/\|/, $words);
$received = $words;
# Convert to pcap using proprietery software.
system(”tshark -r /tmp/amit.pcap -V|grep -E -i ”Amit\|Agarwal””); # The grep expression only displays the fields of interest.
Another techique that is quite helpful is to use different color for grep when you are searching for error/warning. This can be done using:
GREP_COLOR=”01;31” && tshark command
