We have an application deployed on some different platforms, Windows and Linux. It is composed of three java processes.
On Linux, when we want the process id to kill and restart one of them, we do:
ps -ef | grep java
And the outcome is three lines showing the three processes.
One of our clients use Slackware, and when we do this same command, the outcome is several lines, dozens of lines for each of the three processes. And worse, many of those lines show only:
root 3470 0.0 3.1 1468048 64944 ? S 07:33 0:00 java
Which is misinformative, since we cannot determine which of the three modules this is.
Is there something about slackware and the ps command?
Slackware version: 10.2.0
Linux version 2.4.32-abi (root@servidor) (gcc version 3.3.6) #3 Mon Sep 29 10:27:28 GMT 2008
'man ps' says, at the end:
STANDARDS This ps conforms to: 1 Version 2 of the Single Unix Specification 2 The Open Group Technical Standard Base Specifications, Issue 6 3 IEEE Std 1003.1, 2004 Edition 4 X/Open System Interfaces Extension [UP XSI] 5 ISO/IEC 9945:2003
Thanks a lot in advance.
