In a CentOS 7 server, I typed
dmesg and noted the time stamp of the last entry.
Next, I typed
tail -f /var/log/dmesg in a DIFFERENT TERMINAL ON THE SAME MACHINE, so that I could watch the log tail.
Third, I ran some scripts on the same machine using the same terminal. Nothing changed in the terminal in which I had typed
tail -f /var/log/dmesg.
Finally, I typed
dmesg again, extracted the log into Notepad++, and noticed that over 1,500 lines of new logs had been created in the
dmesg output while I was running the other scripts.
What specific commands must be typed in order to get the
tail of the
dmesg logs to actually display on the screen?
