perhaps this might be another solution to have a wrapper to ps.

just have a localized ps which encapsulate /bin/ps and when the user passes the argument aux remap the argument as " x " to /bin/ps

I think this should serve the purpose

2. and also, when I query 'top' it will show active background process from the user's only, not from all users
this is unique, i wonder how this can be done

Code:
       top  [  -bIinqSuv ] [ -dcount ] [ -ofield ] [ -stime ] [ -Uusername ] [
       number ]

Yeah, I wonder that as well. Perhaps the -U option might do something.

Did you save lots of diskspace by not installing the man pages?

these restriction is usually implemented by shell provider
and I did have a shell, by just typing ps aux and top it will only display the processes from current user and I wonder how do they implement such thing

and yes I know there is option -u / -U but the question is to get the results of ps x and top without displaying results of other users

Hi, did you read this post at all? What matrixmadhan is suggesting is exactly what you need to do for the ps command. You can do this for the top command too, as suggested (rather forcefully) by porter.

thanks buddy for the suggestions
i have figured it out by enabling IPFW and edit this important file:
/etc/sysctl.conf

Quote:
# $FreeBSD: src/etc/sysctl.conf,v 1.8 2003/03/13 18:43:50 mux Exp $
#
# This file is read when going to multi-user and its contents piped thru
# ``sysctl'' to adjust kernel values. ``man 5 sysctl.conf'' for details.
#

# Uncomment this to prevent users from seeing information about processes that
# are being run under another UID.
security.bsd.see_other_uids=0
and this required a reboot for me for the changes to make effect
and i dont need to recompile any source code or wrapper (which i dont know what it is)
i just login as normal user, hit "ps aux" and "top" and the result will appears for background processes which is belong to me only

thanks for all
