ALU TL1 drivers.log enhancement

For Alcatel/PON/OLTS-L/*4x.* avoid character based logging in drivers.log and capture the device interactions in string format. Also it is weird that non-error commands or output captured at ERROR log level. IBM L3 Steven Shuman aware of the issue

    I wrote simple program to interpret the log, but the thread number is missing.


    public class ParseTL1DriversLog {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
    FileWriter fw = new FileWriter("TL1drivers.log");
    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new FileReader("drivers.log.10"));
    String line=null, currChars="";
    while((line=br.readLine())!=null && line.indexOf(",MSG:")!=-1) {

    String date = line.substring((line.indexOf('[')+1), line.indexOf(']'));
    line = line.substring(line.indexOf(",MSG:")+5);
    line = line.substring((line.indexOf("<")+1), line.lastIndexOf('>'));

    String prevChars = String.valueOf(currChars);
    currChars = String.valueOf(line);
    if((prevChars+currChars).equals("*/")) line = line.replace("/", "/\n"+date+" - ");
    if((prevChars+currChars).equals(".'")) line = line.replace("'", "\n"+date+" - '");
    if((prevChars+currChars).equals("nO")) line = line.replace("O", "\n"+date+" - O");

    prevChars = null;
    line = line.replace(";", ";\n"+date+" - ");
    line = line.replace("<", "\n"+date+" - <");
    line = line.replace("IP r", "\n"+date+" - IP r");
    line = line.replace("MENU", "\n"+date+" - MENU");
    line = line.replace("OLT", "\n"+date+" - OLT");
    line = line.replace("LAG:", "\n"+date+" - LAG:");

    fw.append(line); fw.flush();
    br.close(); fw.close();
