I am trying to determine what these running processes are on a lab machine I'm trying to use. I've run the following to determine the top 5 cpu-using processes:
ps -eo pid,user,pcpu,args | sort -k3 -n -r | head -n5
I get something like:
3735 xdhmoore 1336 my stuff 25456 otherguy 100 user 3 4 10 1 25455 otherguy 100 user 2 4 10 1 25454 otherguy 100 user 1 4 10 1 7181 root 11.0 antivirus stuff
I'm trying to figure out what
user 3 4 10 1 means in the
args field. I don't seem to have a
user command available to me, and I'm having trouble finding documentation for one. These are Red Hat Enterprise Linux machines. There are 28 CPUs per machine, so I think that accounts for the pcpu values being >=100. I don't have root access.
who -a shows only me, so I believe this may be vestiges of an old login on the physical machine.
