KBEA-00159 Parsing Commander / CloudBees CD (CloudBees Flow) Install Logs


How to make sense of the very verbose Commander or CloudBees CD (CloudBees Flow) install log.


Install the attached tcl script.

run the following command to parse CMDR_installer.log:

tclsh parseEFInstallLog.tcl CMDR_installer.log  > parsed_CMDR_installer.log

The tcl script will filter out unnecessary information, making it much easier to analyze the output


tclsh parseEFInstallLog.tcl CMDR_installer.log  > parsed_CMDR_installer.log
