Getting process/status/interesting info[edit]

PS - report process status[edit]

So you want to list the entire command line related to a process on your box? This is a common need for folks troubleshooting Java applications where the JVM has a lengthy invocation of command line arguments. Depending on whether you're using Linux/Mac or Solaris, the PS command options differ for this "wide" view: On Linux/Mac: ps -ww On Solaris: /usr/ucb/ps -ww (the stock Solaris ps implementation does not support "ww" and seems to lack a handy equivalent.)
