ssh to a box and start a task that will take some time to complete I usually press
control+z to pause the process, and then immediately type
bg 1 to put run it in the background.
I can then type
jobs and see it running.
If I disconnect (type
control+d, etc) and then log back in, I can no longer type
jobs to see it running - it won't show anything.
I know I can type something like
ps -u `whoami`
to see what items are running, but I'm not sure if I can pause them any longer. I know I can kill them, but is there a way to pause them or can I somehow get them to show back up in the
Linux-fu tips regarding jobs and process management are also welcome and will be upvoted.
