Question on output from lsof
Posted on 1997-07-20
I am currently trying to track down which processes have which files open.
I am using a HP-UX 9 box - and the only program I can find to help me easily to do this is with "lsof" - but the output from this program says that there are several thousdand files open, but this cannot be as the NFILE kernel parameter is set to 2000 (so no more than 2000 files open at once).
I am also using glance, which tells me that there are only 1750 files open.
I am either looking for a way to tell me the info I want easily, or how to interpret the lsof output so that I can tell which are really open files and which aren't
