GEL - read files from external host

  • 1.  GEL - read files from external host

    Posted 11-26-2015 12:39 PM

    Hi all,

     

    I would like to be able to read files from different hosts of the same environment. This is the case:

    Production environment is composed of 4 hosts. 2 of them run app and bg service, the other 2 just app service.

     

    As far as I know, the processes are executed in the bg service, therefore, the gel scripts inside processes are too. Therefore, I would only be able to read files from those hosts that run bg services.

     

    How could I read files from hosts that are not running the bg service via GEL inside processes?

    In particular, I would like to read the app-access log file of certain day from all the hosts of the environment.

     

    Has anyone come up with a solution inside Clarity? (I'm aware it could be done directly via scripting in Linux, for instance, but that would require external maintenance)

     

    Thanks.

    Regards,

    DB

    You could use the com.niku.union.gel.FTPTagLibrary to pull files off different hosts as long as you have an ftp demon / service running on those hosts.
