ECFIND(1)							     ECFIND(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ecfind - report processes using process-based event counters

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     ecfind [-tv]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     ecfind may	be used	on systems with	R1x000 processors to discover which
     processes,	if any,	are currently using the	process-based hardware event
     counter mechanisms, e.g. executing	an application under the control of

     This is most useful in situations where the global	event counters cannot
     be	enabled	with ecadmin(1)	due to concurrent use of the process-based
     event counters.

     ecfind uses icrash(1) on the running kernel, and hence must be run	as

     The options to ecfind are as follows;

     -t	  By default ecfind reports processes using a subset of	the output
	  from ps(1) with the options -ef.  The	-t (or terse) option produces
	  a more spartan output	format with just the process id	and the
	  command name reported.

     -v	  More verbose output, with the	details	of intermediate	data used to
	  identify the processes of interest.  This is most useful for
	  debugging any	cases in which ecfind does not correctly identify the
	  target processes.
