remotely tailing a file without ..ah... it appearing in PS??
ok here's the thing, i'm on a windows machine, trying to watch logs on a remote linux servers, now since i don't like extra clicks, i simply use
awesome, however, there's another process on said machine which one of it's functions is to seek out ANYTHING in Process List which contains the "companyName" in the command, and.. well.. kill it, DON'T ASK WHY! it's too painful, unfortunately, it can't kill my tail, but it continues to try, and thus messing itself and interrupting my work. i can't change/stop/tamper with said process as it's external, and part of application i'm trying to solve.
plink user:password at host tail -f /opt/companyName/log.log
so .. i need something somehow, a way, with a single click to see a live stream of this log file, now i know i can use SocketAppender in log4j (said log is in log4j) but is there any other way, in ssh maybe to see directly the file? (can't use winscp to double click it as it's huge and hangs it).
