Hi, We are using the following command to find all the processes owned by "admin" and the processes having name with SIS, ora.

ps -f |-u Admin grep [SIS]  |grep -v " grep [ora\|SIS] " ,

This is listing all the process with ora and SIS and also the following which we want to avoid with shell processes like csh and ksh.

admin 400588 204800   0 13:57:50  pts/0  0:00 ksh
admin 543846 839918   0 16:28:59  pts/3  0:00 -csh

Could some body help us to fine tune the command to list out all the processes with SIS and ora and NOT to show the shell processes ?

Thanks
GVS

Thanks Amit,

this looks promising, but do you think the following change in your command will also show the ora and SIS processes as well ?

ps -f -u Admin | grep [ora\|SIS]  | egrep -v 'grep|ksh|csh'

Thanks

Use egrep instead

ps -f -u Admin | egrep 'ora|SIS'  | egrep -v 'grep|ksh|csh'
