I’m piping rclone output to a file (which I am then emailing) but the file contains all the status messages i.e. progress reports. I want to see those reports in the terminal, but not in the piped output. Any ideas, please? Thanks. (Am on Linux.)
Thanks for the reply. I haven’t been clear (and I’ve corrected a typo in my original post).
I am outputting to a log file and then mailing the file.
The ‘good stuff’ that I want in the log file - and that I want to be the only text in the log file - consists of error messages and success messages. Are you suggesting that those messages come via stderr, whereas the progress reports come via stdout - such that I should pipe only the former to my log file?
EDIT: to clarify further, this is the sort of thing I wish to exclude from the log file:
0 / 0 Bytes, -, 0 Bytes/s, ETA -1.639k / 1.592 kBytes, 103%, 347 Bytes/s, ETA -1.639k / 1.592
+kBytes, 103%, 315 Bytes/s, ETA -1.639k / 1.592 kBytes, 103%, 288 Bytes/s, ETA -1.639k /
+1.639 kBytes, 100%, 265 Bytes/s, ETA 0s1.639k / 1.639 kBytes, 100%, 245 Bytes/s, ETA
+0s1.639k / 1.639 kBytes, 100%, 229 Bytes/s, ETA 0s1.639k / 1.639 kBytes, 100%, 214 Bytes/s,
The full command I am running varies - commands are run from a script. Turning off the stats is not an option - for, to repeat: I wish to see the stats when I am running rclone in an interactive terminal, but (when running rclone in an interactive terminal or in the background) I do not wish the stats to go into the log file.
