#6445 closed enhancement (fixed)

ps cut the lines at fixed width

Reported by: o462 Owned by: developers
Priority: low Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Kamikaze 8.09
Keywords: ps Cc: jonathan@…


The busybox 'ps' command included in OpenWRT cuts the lines at a fixed width, preventing the user to see the full output either by having a wide terminal or redirecting the output to a file or pager.

Yes it's an old bug, nobody wants to fix it. Still presents in Backfire.

A workaround is to install procps (by force). This includes a standard ps.

Another workaround is the following script:

pgrep ssh | while read a; do
echo -n $a" "
cat /proc/$a/cmdline | tr "\0" " "

Where ssh is the process we want to grep from ps output.
