Commande Description
ptime Time the command, like time(1), but using microstate accounting for reproducible precision. Unlike time(1), children of the command are not timed.
ptree Print the process trees containing the specified pids or users, with  child processes indented from their respective parent processes. An argument of all digits is  taken to be a process-id, otherwise it is assumed to be a user login name. Default is all processes.
pwait Wait for all of the specified processes to terminate.
prun  Set each process running (inverse of pstop).
pstop Stop each process (PR_REQUESTED stop).
pwdx  Print the current working directory of each process.
pfiles Report fstat(2) and fcntl(2) information for all open files in each process.
pstack Print a hex+symbolic stack trace for each lwp in each process.
psig  List the  signal actions of each process.
pldd  List the dynamic libraries linked into each process, including shared  objects explicitly attached using dlopen(3DL). See also ldd(1).
pmap  Print the address space map of each process.
pcred Print the credentials (effective, real, saved UIDs and GIDs) of each process.
pflags Print the /proc tracing flags, the pending and held signals, and  other /proc status information for each lwp in each process.



following options are
supported :

- r  (pflags
only) If the
process is
stopped, display its machine registers.

- r  
(pmap only) Print the
process’s reserved addresses.

- x  (pmap only) 
Print resident/shared/private 
mapping details.

- l  (pmap only) Print
unresolved dynamic linker map

- a  (ptree only) All ;
include children of process 0.

- v  (pwait only) 
Verbose ;
report terminations to standard output. 

- F  Force ; grab the target process
even if another process has control.



These proc tools stop their
target processes while inspecting them and reporting
results : pfiles, pldd, pmap,
pstack. A process can do nothing
while it is stopped. Thus,
for example, if the X server is inspected
by one of these
proc tools running in a
window under the X server’s control,
the whole window 
system can
become deadlocked because the 
proc tool would be attempting to
print its results to a window 
that cannot be refreshed. Logging
in from from another
system using rlogin(1) and 
killing the
offending proc tool
would clear up the deadlock in this

Caution should be exercised when
using the -F flag. Imposing
two controlling processes on
one victim process can lead 
to chaos. Safety
assured only if the primary controlling 
process, typically a debugger,
has stopped the victim process and the
primary controlling
process is doing nothing at the
moment of application of the
proc tool in question. 

Some of the proc tools
can also
be applied to
core files, as shown 
by the synopsis above. A
core file is a snapshot of a 
process’s state and is produced by the
kernel prior to terminating
a process with a
signal or by the gcore(1) utility. 
Some of the proc tools may need
to derive the name of 
executable corresponding to the
process which dumped core or the
names of shared libraries
associated with the process.
These files are needed, for
example, to provide symbol table 
information for pstack(1). If
the proc tool in question is 
unable to locate the
needed executable or shared library, 
some symbol information will be 
unavailable for display.
Similarly, if a core file 
one operating system release 
is examined on a different operating 
system release, the 
run-time link-editor debugging 
interface (librtld_db) may not
be able to initialize. In
this case, symbol information <span
lang="EN-GB"> for
shared libraries will not be
