How to spool output to a file




To spool output to a file, you need to use the spool command in srvrmgr. The syntax of the spool command is as follows:


spool output_file


where output_file is the name of the file where you want to save the output. You can specify a full path or a relative path for the output file. If you do not specify a path, the output file will be created in the current working directory of srvrmgr.


For example, to spool the output of the list servers command to a file named servers.txt, you can enter the following commands in srvrmgr:


spool servers.txt list servers spool off


The first command starts spooling the output to servers.txt, the second command executes the list servers command and writes the output to servers.txt, and the third command stops spooling and closes the output file.


How to stop spooling to a file




To stop spooling to a file, you need to use the spool off command in srvrmgr. This command will close the output file and stop writing any further output to it. You can also use the exit or quit commands to stop spooling and exit srvrmgr.


For example, if you want to stop spooling after executing the list components command, you can enter the following commands in srvrmgr:


list components spool off


The first command executes the list components command and writes the output to the output file, and the second command stops spooling and closes the output file.


Tips and tricks for using spool




Here are some tips and tricks for using spool effectively:


  • You can use environment variables in the output file name, such as %DATE%, %TIME%, %SERVER%, or %ENTERPRISE%. This can help you create unique and meaningful file names for different sessions or scenarios. For example, to spool the output of commands to a file named srvrmgr_%DATE%_%TIME%.txt, you can enter the following command in srvrmgr:



spool srvrmgr_%DATE%_%TIME%.txt


  • You can use wildcards (*) in the output file name, such as *.txt or *.log. This will append a unique number to the file name, such as 00001.txt or 00001.log. This can help you avoid overwriting existing files with the same name. For example, to spool the output of commands to a file named srvrmgr_*.txt, you can enter the following command in srvrmgr:



spool srvrmgr_*.txt


  • You can use the set header and set footer commands to control whether header and footer information are included in the output file. Header information includes information such as server name, enterprise name, user name, date, time, and version. Footer information includes information such as elapsed time and number of rows returned. By default, header and footer information are included in the output file. To remove them, you can enter the following commands in srvrmgr:



set header false set footer false


  • Removing header and footer information can be useful if you want to parse or analyze the output of srvrmgr commands using other tools or scripts.



  • You can use the read command to execute commands from a file instead of typing them manually in srvrmgr. The read command takes an input file name as an argument and executes each line in the input file as a srvrmgr command. The read command can be useful if you want to automate or repeat certain tasks using srvrmgr. For example, if you have a file named commands.txt that contains several srvrmgr commands, such as list servers, list components, list tasks, etc., you can enter the following commands in srvrmgr to execute them and spool the output to a file named output.txt:



spool output.txt read commands.txt spool off


Conclusion




The spool command in srvrmgr is a handy feature that allows you to save the output of commands to a file. You can use spool to create logs, audits, or reports of your Siebel Server administration activities. You can also use spool in combination with other commands and features of srvrmgr to enhance your productivity and efficiency. We hope this article has helped you learn how to use spool and some tips and tricks to make the most of it.
