I used the below command to list down all the daemons that are in a machine

/sbin/initctl list | awk '{ if ($1 == "tty") print $1" "$2; else print $1; }'

Now my next requirement is to get the daemons running path i.e command line.

For instance vmsd /usr/sbin/vmsd

So gave couple of tries using the ps aux command followed by the grep command but I am not getting the results as expected.

Can some one help me out with this?

    If you can find the PID, use cat /proc/$pid/cmdline perhaps. – DopeGhoti Jan 27 '17 at 16:08
