ps to find command line

January 10, 2019

I wanted to use ps on linux to find the full command line that a process was started with. This can be done using the options -eaf

ps -eaf | grep drumcoder                     
root     28382 28322  0 08:18 pts/0    00:00:00 /home/drumcoder/.venv/drumcoder/bin/python /home/drumcoder/.venv/drumcoder/bin/gunicorn --workers 1 --error-logfile /var/log/gunicorn/drumcoder.log -b localhost:8001 -n drumcoder drumcoder.drumcoder-wsgi:application
root     28492 28322  0 08:21 pts/0    00:00:00 grep drumcoder
