FINDDEV(8) FINDDEV(8) NAME finddev - find processes using a device SYNOPSIS /etc/finddev [ pid ] ... [ file ] ... DESCRIPTION When invoked without arguments, finddev prints the number of every process and a description of each file referred to by that process. Giving one or more process numbers restricts finddev's attention to those processes. If file arguments appear, finddev prints only the process numbers of those processes that refer to files in the argu- ment list. If an argument file is an ordinary file, charac- ter special file, or directory, the process must refer to that file to be counted. If an argument is a block special file containing a mounted file system, a process will be counted if it refers to any file on that file system. To see details of all processes referring to, say, the con- sole, try: finddev `finddev /dev/console` Finddev has no special privileges. To use it, the user must have permission to read /dev/mem.
