PS(1) PS(1) NAME ps - process (thread) status SYNOPSIS bind '#p' /prog ps DESCRIPTION Ps prints to the standard output information about all cur- rent Inferno processes. It looks in /prog for process sta- tus files; normally that requires that the prog(3) device has previously been bound there (as shown above), but it is also possible to import /prog from a remote machine. Each line of information printed consists of seven columns: the process id, the process group id, the owner of the pro- cess, cpu time used by the process, the run state of the process, the amount of memory used by the process, and the name of the module containing the currently running func- tion. FILES /prog/*/status SOURCE /appl/cmd/ps.b SEE ALSO deb(1), kill(1), stack(1), wm/task and wm/memory in wm-misc(1), prog(3) BUGS The amount reported as ``memory used'' does not accurately reflect the amount of memory referred to by the process, because the heap is shared. The cpu time used is currently shown as zero in most hosted implementations.
