User-Agent:       
Build Identifier: 

I run yum -y upgrade in a nightly cron job.
The logs look like this, and go on for pages:
Installing: kernel 93 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel 93 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel 93 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel!94 % done 4/7
  94 % do
Installing: kernel 94 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel 94 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel 95 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel 95 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel 96 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel 96 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel 97 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel !7 % done 4/7
 97 % don
Installing: kernel 98 % done 4/7
Installing: kernel 98 % done 4/7

It would be nice if yum's output was log friendly.

run yum -d1 -e1 -y upgrade in a nightly cron job.

1. you'll find the output is more to your liking
2. you'll find that all of the data outputted of any significance is
also sent to /var/log/yum.log
3. if you look at the cron job that yum comes with you'll see we use
-d0 -e0 for the nightly updates.
