share|improve this question

I use this in in Linux and Solaris to find a process in ps based listening ports.

ps -ef | grep `lsof  -i :7001 | grep "LISTEN"|awk '{print $2}'`

Add e(Select all processes) argument:

ps -ef | grep PORT_NUMBER

It depends on the time resolution you need. If the process started more than 24 hours ago you'll have only the date of its start given in ps -ef output.

Try looking into the system's logs. There's a good chance that the starting server wrote a line or two into the log.
