Hi
Im working with the old exercise in python and I need help please.

The goal of this exercise is to extract information and statistical data from a log file. You can use the logfile generated by the linux kernel. You should write a python code which gives the following information:

  1. For each hour slot (like 7 to 8, 8 to 9,. . . ): the number of messages in average per day
  2. The number of messages in average per day
  3. The length of period represented by the file
  4. The average delay between two messages
  5. The longest delay between two messages
