Multiple Pipe Arguments Within One Show Command?

I am wondering if anyone knows a trick to use multiple arguments within one pipe command? For example I would like to use a | include as well as a | redirect.

Otherwise the problem I am trying to solve is having our monitoring system kick off a show command and then output the results of the show to a tftp server on an ASA when a specific alert is kicked off.


Thank you,

Not sure if you have

Not sure if you have "redirect" option after the PIPE command, at least I havn't seen one yet :-). But to solve your problem you can use something like :

call-home send "show run" email

of course you can do more with "Call-home" feature of the ASA as well as you will need additional commands and prerequisites like DNS setup etc to get it going. 

useful links :

Certainly I would prefer something like EEM on cisco asa well in coming future.
