Process monitor ps output format
Posted on 2008-06-22
"ps auxw" lists too many fields and in an order I do not need/like.
So, I use "ps -ewo user,pid,nice,pcpu,pmem,time,start,cmd"
which works fine except that start time is in an impractical format e.g. "11:03:06" or "Jun 16" The problem with this is that I get one or two words which makes difficult to pass ps output to a script. "ps auxw" start time format is good e.g. "11:03" or "Jun06". How do I use "ps -ewo" to output a compact start time format like "ps auxw"?
