Show processes command

Does anyone know of somewhere I can obtain some information about the process states in the "S" column of the "show processes" command.

Re: Show processes command

Is there a reason you need to know this? Looking at the controller when you run show processes command you see the following line at the bottom.

 

ps --user nobody -N -wo %cpu,state,pid,ppid,vsz,rss,flags,nice,start_time,time,eip,cmd

 

This appears to relate to the headers at the top of show processes command, it suggests that that column relates to the "state" of the process.

 

%cpu,state,pid,ppid,vsz,rss,flags,nice,start_time,time,eip,cmd

 

The only flag's I've seen in the state colum are S and R.

 

"S" appears to be next to a process which is being run by the mobility switch

"R" appears to be run by a user, i.e the "show processes" command.

 

Maybe someone else can shed some light on this... :)

Re: Show processes command

The possible values are -

D - Uniterruptible Sleep

R - Runnable

S - Sleeping

T - Traced or Stopped

Z - defunct.

 

T and Z are considered bad, but I would like to understand a little more in case they are seen in any outputs.
