getAppLogs script for collecting WAS HPEL log messages

I wrote a month ago about creating per-application log files, and using that method has completely changed my life. OK, maybe it's not quite that amazing, but it has significantly reduced the time I need to spend combing through log files full of verbose trace statements. So much so that I've created a GitHub project with a more robust version of the sample script from the earlier blog post.
I highly recommend switching to HPEL logging mode and using getAppLogs to collect logs, especially when setting trace under Support direction. The trace logs we get are often very large, and it can be difficult to extract the relevant logging. This is true from both a time perspective -- the test window generally makes up a tiny fraction of the overall log(s) -- and from an application perspective, where trace statements can be generated by multiple applications in a multi-app solution like IBM Connections. Using getAppLogs will help you and Support extract only the relevant logging for faster problem determination.
