ofl man page

ofl — open file lister

Syntax

ofl [-P] [-k signalspec] path[...]

Description

Lists all processes that have directories or files open or in use within path. Additionally it can send a signal to these processes to free up a mountpoint for example.

Options

-k signalspec
Send the given signal to all processes that match.
-P
Show only the PIDs of the processes that matched.

Differences to lsof/fuser

·
`lsof /home/user` and `fuser /home/user` would not list processes that have a descriptor open on /home/user/subdir.
·
`fuser -m /home/subdir` would automatically go down to the root of a vfsmount (e.g. /home) and list all processes, instead of limiting to /home/subdir.
