When I start a command with AT, I wish to know its process ID to kill it, and see if its finished.  How is this done?
I normally use tail -f <logfile> to watch its log progress.

Sorry I didn't mention that its Sun Solaris 2.6 - bash shell.
The pstree command is not found.  Could i change shell and use it.  How do I change shell?

* Write in the AT invocation something like "cat $$ >/path/pid". So, when AT executes your process,. its PID will be saved into "pid" file.

* Run your AT jobs as a special user. You can use "ptree" to see the processes tree per User or per PID.
