We have a log file which is updated by one Perl script using logmsg.  But I find nothing when I am using lsof|grep logfile to try to find out the process id. Actually I already know which process but I also did not find this logfile descriptor in /proc/processid/fd.  Why?  What is the right way to find out this process ?
