I started a long running background-process (
/dev/urandom) in my ssh console. Later I had to disconnect. When I logged in, again (this time directly, without ssh), the process still seemed to to run.
I am not sure what happened - I did not use
disown. When I logged in later, the process was not listed in
top at first, but after a while it reclaimed a high CPU percentage, as I expected. So I assume
dd is still running.
Now, I'd like to see the progress. I use
kill -USR1 <pid> but nothing is printed. Is there any way to get the output again?
