Post @V"env:PPID" on Multi-Platform (Linux) Reply with quote
Hi,
24x7 Scheduler Multi-Platform ver 4.3.293 on red Hat Linux 5.

I am trying to direct the output from a shell script to a file, whose name is derived by using Macro Variables...
Job details are;
Type: Program
Command: /bin/sh -c "/scheduler/scripts/script1.ksh >> /scheduler/logs/@T"yyyymmdd"/@V"job_name"_@V"env:PPID".log"

The values for @T"yyyymmdd" and @V"job_name" work correctly, however @V"env:PPID" produces "PPID" and not the value of the Linux environment variable $PPID.

Q: How would I reference the value of the Process ID of teh running job/script ?

That indicates that PPID environment variable cannot be found.

You cannot reference Process id this way. The macro parameters in the command line and other job properties are substituted before the process is started. Basically the process id is not available yet. If you are looking for a unique number, try referencing system clock time via @T macro and include the time portion.
