prstat problem

This will be a smaple output for my prstat -t
43 root 249M 62M 1.5% 33:50:01 0.1%
12 oadmin 1396M 862M 22% 0:06:49 0.1%
2 acne 3960K 3176K 0.1% 0:00:00 0.0%
4 essagent 10M 7456K 0.2% 0:00:00 0.0%

1 daemon 2544K 1128K 0.0% 0:00:00 0.0%

I want to get the output of only user 'oadmin' so I tried to use

prstat -t | grep oadmin , when i used grep this doesnt seem to work any ideas please.

This should work:

prstat -t|grep oadmin|cut -d" " -f5

prstat needs count option


prstat -t 1 1 | gawk '/oadmin/{print $3;}'
