Hi Expert,

Can anyone help me shed some light, how can i create the TCL to checking the number of file in directory before writing the new file in directory?  I need to limit the amount of file store in directory. Platform ASR9K. Thanks in advance

Here is the specific Tcl code that will work.

set files [glob -directory "harddisk:/BGP-script" -- *]

if { [llength $files] == 10 } {

    set oldest [list [lindex $files 0] [file mtime [lindex $files 0]]]

    foreach file $files {

        set mtime [file mtime $file]

        if { $mtime < [lindex $oldest 1] } {

            set oldest [list $file $mtime]

        }

    }

    file delete -force [lindex $oldest 0]

}

The algorithm is incomplete.  The code still just finds the oldest.  Might be better to use the built-in Tcl for this:

if { [llength $files] >= 5 } {
    array set oldest [list]
    foreach file $files {
        set oldest([file mtime $file]) $file
    }
    set mtimes [lsort -integer [array names oldest]]
    for {set i 0} {$i < 2} {incr i} {
        file delete -force $oldest([lindex $mtimes $i])
    }
}

Post the output of the dir command from the ASR9K.  Are you looking for a specific filename pattern or just the total number of all files on disk?

Hi Joe,

The object is I prefer to limit only have 10 files in directory and oldest file would be deleted if file no.11 is written into directory. Thanks for your advise.

Here is the specific Tcl code that will work.

set files [glob -directory "harddisk:/BGP-script" -- *]

if { [llength $files] == 10 } {

    set oldest [list [lindex $files 0] [file mtime [lindex $files 0]]]

    file delete -force [lindex $oldest 0]

}

Hi Joe,

Thank you for script. It is working as expected. Lastly, if i need to delete more old files such as two oldest files then the script below should be working?

set files [glob -directory "harddisk:/BGP-script/" -- *]
  if { [llength $files] >= 5 } {
  set oldest [list [lindex $files 0 && lindex $files 1 ] [file mtime [lindex $files 1]]]
  foreach file $files {
        set mtime [file mtime $file]
        if { $mtime < [lindex $oldest 2] } {
             set oldest [list $file $mtime]
        }
    }

No.  You'll need to maintain a list of the files in order of oldest to newest.

set files [glob -directory "harddisk:/BGP-script" -- *]

if { [llength $files] == 10 } {

    set oldest [list [lindex $files 0]]

    set mtime [file mtime [lindex $files 0]]

    foreach file $files {

        set mt [file mtime $file]

        if { $mt < $mtime } {

            set oldest [linsert $oldest 0 $file]

            set mtime $mt

        }

    }

    for {set i 0} {$i < 2} {incr i} {

        file delete -force [lindex $oldest $i]

    }

}

Hi Joe,
Thanks for script. I have tested and there was something issue. Please consider here

1st :: Original file in harddisk:/BGP-script/

2nd:: After script run, the correct two oldest files are deleted as expected

3rd:: Actually, the two oldest files with time stamp 19:29:24 and 19:29:25 should be deleted but the script deleted the  file 19:29:24 and 19:49:52.

==== Script =====

set files [glob -directory "harddisk:/BGP-script" -- *]
   if { [llength $files] >= 5 } {
      set oldest [list [lindex $files 0]]
      set mtime [file mtime [lindex $files 0]]
    foreach file $files {
       set mt [file mtime $file]
    if { $mt < $mtime } {
    set oldest [linsert $oldest 0 $file]
    set mtime $mt
    }
  for {set i 0} {$i < 2} {incr i} {
     file delete -force [lindex $oldest $i]
        set filename [format "/harddisk:/BGP-script/script-log-%s.txt" $tdate]
        set outfile [open $filename w]
        action_syslog priority info msg "Opened $filename"
        puts $outfile "The syslog that trigger the EEM script is:"
        puts $outfile $syslog_msg
     }
}

The algorithm is incomplete.  The code still just finds the oldest.  Might be better to use the built-in Tcl for this:

if { [llength $files] >= 5 } {
    array set oldest [list]
    foreach file $files {
        set oldest([file mtime $file]) $file
    }
    set mtimes [lsort -integer [array names oldest]]
    for {set i 0} {$i < 2} {incr i} {
        file delete -force $oldest([lindex $mtimes $i])
    }
}
