just started a java (tomcat) server on Linux 9 machine.
After sometime when i do:
ps -ef

My java process is not listed there.

But the java server process is actually running. I can tell that by trying to browse to my Admin Page on http://hostort:8080/ - it responds correctly.

Also when i do netstat -an, i can see port 8080 is in LISTEN mode.

So my application is running but not visible in 'ps -ef'.

do netstat -apn | grep 8080

you should get a couple of lines with one being tomcat after that check towards the start of the line there should be something like java/xxxx or tomcat/xxxx where xxxx is the pid get the pid and do

ps uax | grep xxxx and you should get the true name of the process

A neater solution would be

fuser -n tcp 8080


this lists all the processes on port 8080, for example

debian:~# fuser -n tcp 80
80/tcp:               3413  3414 20979 20980 20981 26513 31295 31299 31303 31304 31305 31306

I found I needed to be root to get that to work, and then I got a confusing "here" line:

20:43:17# fuser -n tcp 21
here: 21
21/tcp:               1528

But as root I prefer to use lsof -i

20:43:25# lsof -i|grep ftp
inetd     1528 root    6u  IPv4   4720       TCP *:ftp (LISTEN)

Be that as it may, I would expect the process to show up with ps -ef, although I always use ps ax. Maybe some of its details are not as expected?

Considering most servers have over 100 processes running at any given time, have you scrolled right back to the top?

ps -e
ps -ef
ps aux

They should all return the same number of processors, just displayed in a standard or bsd format.
