Any way to sort ps output based on STIME?

Hi,

This is one of the thing that am looking for when I post the question on the ps wrapper. It has since been closed as it has taken me too long to post an example.

I have replaced some of the original content of the ps output.

uname -a = SunOS <hostname> 5.11 11.3 sun4v sparc sun4v

Code:
= This is the current output

$: ps -ef | grep pmon | grep -i abc | grep -v grep

     UID   PID  PPID   C    STIME TTY         TIME CMD
  oracle 27452 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           5:42 ora_pmon_abcd9
  oracle  9843 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           4:50 ora_pmon_abcd11
  oracle 28017 16899   0   Sep 26 ?           0:38 ora_pmon_abcd15
  oracle  6017 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           6:37 ora_pmon_abcd1
  oracle  8273 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           4:22 ora_pmon_abcd10
  oracle 29331 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           5:36 ora_pmon_abct1
  oracle  4154 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           4:33 ora_pmon_abct3
  oracle 24750 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           4:33 ora_pmon_abcd8
  oracle  5755 16899   0 06:28:27 ?           0:08 ora_pmon_abcd2
  oracle 23611 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           5:42 ora_pmon_abcd5
  oracle 27760 16899   0   Sep 21 ?           2:46 ora_pmon_abct11
  oracle 22935 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           5:17 ora_pmon_abcd3

= This is the current output that I am hoping to have. I just sorted the output manually below

     UID   PID  PPID   C    STIME TTY         TIME CMD
  oracle  8273 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           4:22 ora_pmon_abcd10

  oracle 24750 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           4:33 ora_pmon_abcd8
  oracle  9843 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           4:50 ora_pmon_abcd11
  oracle 22935 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           5:17 ora_pmon_abcd3  
  oracle 29331 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           5:36 ora_pmon_abct1
  oracle 23611 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           5:42 ora_pmon_abcd5
  oracle 27452 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           5:42 ora_pmon_abcd9
  oracle  6017 16899   0   Sep 15 ?           6:37 ora_pmon_abcd1
  oracle 27760 16899   0   Sep 21 ?           2:46 ora_pmon_abct11
  oracle 28017 16899   0   Sep 26 ?           0:38 ora_pmon_abcd15
  oracle  5755 16899   0 06:28:27 ?           0:08 ora_pmon_abcd2

Can't find the right ps args to use. Not sure if there is one available tbh. Any way, hope I can get some suggestion on how to achieve the desired output that am after.

Thanks in advance.

You can do the following to sort based on column number, than sort the output based on column numerically.

sort -k5 | sort -nr

The whole thing would look something of the like

ps ef | grep blah | grep -i blah | grep -v grep | sort -k <stime column number> | sort -nr
