history command is executed, it shows a list of recently executed commands. Is there any provision with which we can see the time at which those particular commands were executed?
You need to set the
HISTTIMEFORMAT env variable.
If the $HISTTIMEFORMAT variable is set and not null, its value is used as a format string for strftime(3) to print the time stamp associated with each displayed history entry. No time stamps are printed otherwise.
The format is described in the strftime manpage.
$ export HISTTIMEFORMAT='%F %T ' $ history|tail -2 501 2014-11-03 20:51:41 export HISTTIMEFORMAT='%F %T ' 502 2014-11-03 20:51:44 history
