It is not a script but a program that can identify files, directories, even network sockets that have been opened by one or more processes. Get a copy from:

software.hp.com

Search for lsof and select it from the Internet Express package.

'Pre -- can also buld it from sources.

Or download pre-built ones from the HP-UX Porting Site. (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/)


And surely you have access to Google too right?

Abid,

I'm not sure if attaching a zip file here is a proper way to distribute lsof. You could infringe copyrights by doing this. If Renz has a valid support contract he can download it from hp.com - it is part of the Internet Express DVD. And if he doesn't have a support, he can download an older version from the HP-UX Porting centre, which was linked above.

Re: LSOF ( list open files )

Hi:

And when you have 'lsof' installed (and I would fetch a copy from the HP-UX Porting Centre) you can query the filesystem in question with:

# lsof +L1 +D /mymountpoint

Look for files with an "NLINK" count of zero (0). The "SIZE/OFF" field will be the size in characters consumed. Files with a link count of zero are those that have been unlinked (removed).

Regards!

You may have a hard time finding lsof for that obsolete HP-UX version. You may have to build from source and backport it.

> 10.xx is obsolete

Merjin has provided an excellent link to old software:
