Replace string across multiple analytics log files
Managed by | Updated .
If ever there is a need to replace a problematic string which may appear in the analytics log files which may be causing analytics to fail to load in the Administrator UI, do the following in a Linux based system.
You would need to gunzip the relevant log files e.g. clicked_facet-<servername>.<date>.log.xml.gz or queries-<servername>.<date>.log.gz you require to change first. Once that is done, do the following:
grep -l '<text to change>' *.log | xargs sed -i 's/<text to change>/<text to be changed to>/g' #e.g grep -l 'Printing (including the Reproduction of' *.log | xargs sed -i 's/Printing (including the Reproduction of/Printing (including the Reproduction of Recorded Media)/g'
