I was curious if anyone new a command like tail or top to constantly monitor a service as it runs. I'm trying to watch sendmail currently to see who is connecting to it, but would like to have it a little more dynamic than just repeatedly typing ps aux | grep send
is there a good way to constantly keep this running? Thanks guys n' gals
You can use the
watch command along with
ps -aux to refresh.
watch -n 5 "ps -axf |grep send" will run the
ps command every 5 seconds (note the quotes).
