Thread: Cannot find pid in top using ps on Linux box

  1. Cannot find pid in top using ps on Linux box

    When I issue a top command I see multiple processes but cannot list
    the process with a "ps" command.

    Server Type : Dell System PowerEdge 1950
    Bios: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 1.3.7
    OS: Linux 2.4.21-47.0.1.ELsmp

    top -b -n 1 | grep nautilus
    14925 pgjm 15 0 15248 14M 9904 S 0.0 1.4 0:23 0
    nautilus
    14936 pgjm 25 0 15248 14M 9904 S 0.0 1.4 0:00 3
    nautilus
    14937 pgjm 25 0 15248 14M 9904 S 0.0 1.4 0:00 0
    nautilus
    14938 pgjm 25 0 15248 14M 9904 S 0.0 1.4 0:00 0
    nautilus
    14939 pgjm 25 0 15248 14M 9904 S 0.0 1.4 0:00 0
    nautilus
    14940 pgjm 25 0 15248 14M 9904 S 0.0 1.4 0:00 1
    nautilus
    14941 pgjm 25 0 15248 14M 9904 S 0.0 1.4 0:00 1
    nautilus
    14942 pgjm 24 0 15248 14M 9904 S 0.0 1.4 0:00 1
    nautilus


    The only process that has something tied to it is 14925. The others do
    not exists in the process report.
    Proc: pgjm 14925 1 0 Apr17 ? 00:00:23 nautilus --no-
    default-window --sm-client-id default3
    Proc: 14936
    Proc: 14937
    Proc: 14938
    Proc: 14939
    Proc: 14940
    Proc: 14941
    Proc: 14942

    Anyone have any clue as to what is going on?

    What "process report"?
    For ps you probably want
    ps -a
    to list all processes.
