Select host names from log files

  • A+

I have an application that generates 100's of text log files which are like

DaemonReruns=2|  Phase=|  Log=false| DS=LOG_4| Schema=LOLYY| DBMS=mssql|| IDs=xxxxx,xxxx 

I need to select Host from these I tried

GC  C:/log_5.txt |     Select-String -Pattern 'Host=/"([^/"]*)/"' 

Gives no results, any help ?


There aren't any quotes in your example input. Try this regex:

get-content C:/log_5.txt | foreach {     if ($_ -match 'Host=([^|]+)') {         $Matches.1     } } 

Note: This actually returns the host names, not just the line.
