have awk grep 2 variables

have awk grep 2 variables

have awk grep 2 variables

I'm trying to parse the following

I want to get a total of UP/DOWN from doing a status:

sys1 UP
sys2 UP
sys3 DOWN
sys4 UP

right now I am doing

app_status |awk 'NR>1 { r[$2]++ } END {for (i in r) print r[i], i}'

how do i grep on up and down to feed into NR ?
so that I have UP=4 DOWN =1 ?

RE: have awk grep 2 variables

both work! That later is what I was trying to pull out. I wasn't defining UP / DOWN on my attempts.

RE: have awk grep 2 variables

I actually thought i'd have to define each something like UP=0; DOWN=0; then pull them from the array but your way simplified this.
