Re: Open files !

Shalom,

Install gpm the gui portion of glance.

gpm has a high water mark that can show use of files.

Or:

Re: Open files !

did you consider

lsof | wc -l

yet ?

you might need to use additional commands in the pipe to exclude some files or applications but this should give you a starting point.


{lsof=list open files as name implies)

Hope this helps

Re: Open files !

Hi ,

To know the number of open use this command.

#sar -v 2 2

HP-UX hpserver B.11.11 U 9000/800 05/06/09

15:10:58 text-sz ov proc-sz ov inod-sz ov file-sz ov
15:11:00 N/A N/A 300/4096 0 4164/8192 0 7897/32778 0
15:11:02 N/A N/A 300/4096 0 4164/8192 0 7897/32778 0

here it is 7897 out of it's maximum 32778(nfile value)
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: Open files !

Thanks for all replies.

Is there any way to check which process has open which file.

Any way to track individual process has opened how many files ?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Open files !

That is just what lsof excels at! See the man page:
