  Oracle Tips by Burleson

Using the find command

The find command allows us to do a more comprehensive search spanning the directory tree. Find also allows us to specify more specific options to filter the search results. Letís take a look at how we would find files using even more specific search criteria.

Find files by age

Letís look and see if there are any really old files on our server. We will issue the command as the root user from the / (root) directory, so that we have visibility to all files on the server. We will look for any files that are more than 20 years (7300 days) old.

Find files > 20 years old

# cd /

# find . -mtime +7300 <find files more than 20 years old>

./tmp/orbit-root <one file found>

# cd /tmp <letís go check it out>

# ls -ld orbit-root

drwx------ 2 root root 8192 Dec 31 1969 orbit-root


Wow, we found a directory with a 1969 timestamp. Yep, thatís more than 20 years old all right.
