Re: Need to know command


Quite a difficult question to answer since there may be applications or databases installed but not currently in use.

"ps -ef" can give an indication of all the applications that are currently running on the system.

For Oracle applications and databases, you can determine all the installed programs by launching the oracle installer and querying the "installed products".

To know about the running databases, type: ps -ef|grep pmon

the database names would be the suffix of the strings you get, e.g.
ora_pmon_demo ====> demo

if you need any further assistance, do let us know.

kind regards
