ps - Report process status
ps [ -defhmu ] [ -j id ] [ -k id ] [ -l module ]
Ps reports system module and active user processes. Without options, the -u flag is assumed.
Select module information display format: decimal (-d) or hexadecimal (-h).
Show everything. A list of user (-u) processes and system modules (-m) are both shown.
Full information. Lists are displayed with as much information as possible. With this option, full pathnames are displayed with -u.
Show modules. Each entry gives a module’s index and ID number, size, address in memory, modification date, name and version number.
Show user processes. (default)
Show information for one module where id is either its index or ID (in decimal).
Kill a module where id is either its index or ID (in decimal). See Warning. Super user only.
Load module by name. If the module name contains no slashes, it is assumed to reside in $/sys/modules. Super user only.
Killing system-dependent modules can have unfortunate results. Loading modules indiscriminately can cause serious memory errors.
