I have logs like theses:

blah blah (Linux+amd64+2.6.18-308.11.1.el5;+Java+HotSpot(TM)+64-Bit+Server+VM+20.5-b03) 200 0 0 8
blah blah (Linux+amd64+2.6.18-308.11.1.el5;+Java+HotSpot(TM)+64-Bit+Server+VM+20.5-b03) 401 2 5 1

I want to extract the last number(s) from the logs. in the above examples I want 8 and 1. How can I do this using rex?

I have multiple line log entry and the last line reads like this
[Message=Product: Epicor Administration Console -- Removal completed successfully.]
