I want to create a date stamped log file called e.g. log_file_10_11_2017 containing

  • a list of who is logged into the system,
  • the disk usage and
  • my currently running processes.

The file I want to save to an existing directory situated in my home directory, and I would generate the filename using

day=$(date +%b-%d-%y)

As for the remaining tasks: I am very new to write shell script, any help would be appreciated.
