[IDD #OII-423146]: suggestion for getting list of products via pqact

Hi Rick,

Sorry for the silence, I was out of the house on a food shopping

I believe that the output from 'ldmadmin watch' is sent to STDERR, not

Another way of logging the receipt of products is to use the LDM utility 
Here is an example for your system:

notifyme -vl /home/ldm/file-list.txt -f CONDUIT -p "gfs.*0p5"

I ran a slight variation of this on our machine, and the output
file has the expected Product IDs:

notifyme -vl /opt/ldm/file-list_gfs_0p5.txt -f CONDUIT -p "gfs.*0p5" -o 1800

From another terminal, I ran:

less /opt/ldm/file-list_gfs_0p5.txt

The 'notifyme' output reminded me that the Product IDs for the CONDUIT
products have a section that is sorrounded by exclamation marks.
This lit a light bulb about why your script was not logging the
GFS Product IDs: the exclamation marks are being interpreted by
the Korn shell interpreter so what it is actually doing is not what
you want it to do.  I think you need to change your script to:


echo '$1' | grep "gfs.*0p5" >> /opt/ldm/file-list.txt

NB: surrounding the command line text with single quotes insures
that the shell won't try to interpret the exclamation marks.  Also,
I combined your two 'grep's into one as it is more compact.

Or, you can use 'notifyme' in the manner show above.  I recommend
using 'notifyme'...
