fuser - Online in the Cloud

Run fuser in OnWorks free hosting provider over Ubuntu Online, Fedora Online, Windows online emulator or MAC OS online emulator

This is the command fuser that can be run in the OnWorks free hosting provider using one of our multiple free online workstations such as Ubuntu Online, Fedora Online, Windows online emulator or MAC OS online emulator

PROGRAM:

NAME


fuser - identify processes using files or sockets

SYNOPSIS


fuser [-fuv] [-a|-s] [-4|-6] [-c|-m|-n space] [ -k [-i] [-M] [-w] [-SIGNAL] ] name ...
fuser -l
fuser -V

DESCRIPTION


fuser displays the PIDs of processes using the specified files or file systems. In the
default display mode, each file name is followed by a letter denoting the type of access:

c current directory.
e executable being run.
f open file. f is omitted in default display mode.
F open file for writing. F is omitted in default display mode.
r root directory.
m mmap'ed file or shared library.

fuser returns a non-zero return code if none of the specified files is accessed or in case
of a fatal error. If at least one access has been found, fuser returns zero.

In order to look up processes using TCP and UDP sockets, the corresponding name space has
to be selected with the -n option. By default fuser will look in both IPv6 and IPv4
sockets. To change the default, behavior, use the -4 and -6 options. The socket(s) can
be specified by the local and remote port, and the remote address. All fields are
optional, but commas in front of missing fields must be present:

[lcl_port][,[rmt_host][,[rmt_port]]]

Either symbolic or numeric values can be used for IP addresses and port numbers.

fuser outputs only the PIDs to stdout, everything else is sent to stderr.

OPTIONS


-a, --all
Show all files specified on the command line. By default, only files that are
accessed by at least one process are shown.

-c Same as -m option, used for POSIX compatibility.

-f Silently ignored, used for POSIX compatibility.

-k, --kill
Kill processes accessing the file. Unless changed with -SIGNAL, SIGKILL is sent.
An fuser process never kills itself, but may kill other fuser processes. The
effective user ID of the process executing fuser is set to its real user ID before
attempting to kill.

-i, --interactive
Ask the user for confirmation before killing a process. This option is silently
ignored if -k is not present too.

-l, --list-signals
List all known signal names.

-m NAME, --mount NAME
NAME specifies a file on a mounted file system or a block device that is mounted.
All processes accessing files on that file system are listed. If a directory file
is specified, it is automatically changed to NAME/. to use any file system that
might be mounted on that directory.

-M, --ismountpoint
Request will be fulfilled only if NAME specifies a mountpoint. This is an
invaluable seatbelt which prevents you from killing the machine if NAME happens to
not be a filesystem.

-w Kill only processes which have write access. This option is silently ignored if -k
is not present too.

-n SPACE, --namespace SPACE
Select a different name space. The name spaces file (file names, the default), udp
(local UDP ports), and tcp (local TCP ports) are supported. For ports, either the
port number or the symbolic name can be specified. If there is no ambiguity, the
shortcut notation name/space (e.g. 80/tcp) can be used.

-s, --silent
Silent operation. -u and -v are ignored in this mode. -a must not be used with
-s.

-SIGNAL
Use the specified signal instead of SIGKILL when killing processes. Signals can be
specified either by name (e.g. -HUP)orby number (e.g. -1). This option is
silently ignored if the -k option is not used.

-u, --user
Append the user name of the process owner to each PID.

-v, --verbose

Verbose mode. Processes are shown in a ps-like style. The fields PID, USER and
COMMAND are similar to ps. ACCESS shows how the process accesses the file.
Verbose mode will also show when a particular file is being access as a mount
point, knfs export or swap file. In this case kernel is shown instead of the PID.

-V, --version
Display version information.

-4, --ipv4
Search only for IPv4 sockets. This option must not be used with the -6 option and
only has an effect with the tcp and udp namespaces.

-6, --ipv6
Search only for IPv6 sockets. This option must not be used with the -4 option and
only has an effect with the tcp and udp namespaces.

- Reset all options and set the signal back to SIGKILL.
