Today i won’t write a blog entry explaining a feature. I would just like to guide your attention to an article at “Teaching an old ps command new tricks” written by Alan Coopersmith.

ps saw a lot of extensions in a recent SRU. A lot of the changes are making the life easier when porting Linux tools as the Solaris ps is now able to understand more Linux option.

The SRU27 also introduced a --human-readable option, however it’s now part of all the tool that undestand the --scale= option and --human-readable is now equivalent to --scale=max,1024. For more information about the --scale= option you can read my recent blog entry about it.
