--output arguments controls what rhit outputs.
Here are the possible values:
tables: the default summary, as tables
raw: raw lines as they appear in the source log files
All filters apply, but the choice of fields isn't applied.
For this documentation's screenshots, all outputs are filtered to keep 4 hits, by combining a date filter and a path filter:
-p 'poisson-frit' -d '2023/08/21'.
Here's for example just the
paths tables, with
-a so that images aren't excluded:
rhit --output raw or
rhit -o r
Without filter, this wouldn't be useful: this just unzips, sorts, and concatenates all log files.
While this may be useful sometimes when piped into another tool (log lines aren't loaded in memory, they're streamed as soon as read), this is mostly useful when used with filters.
For Comma Separated Values, use
rhit --output csv or
rhit -o c.
It's probable that you'll want to export to a file, though:
rhit -o c > log.csv.
rhit -- output json or
rhit -o j.
Here's for example piped to jq:
