Extract readable dates Nagios log file

Here is a command I used to extract readable timestamps from our Nagios log

cat /path/to/nagios/log | while read date rest ; do timestamp=$(echo $date | sed ‘s/\[//;s/\]//’); echo $(date -d “1970-01-01 $timestamp sec GMT+1”) $rest ; done | grep “whatever you want to find”
