Usage of prstat -j option.


I need to capture output of prstat command for certain pid's .I found it as prstat -j filename. I created a filename projlist gave the pid number on the projlist file and run the cmd like this

>prstat -j projlist
prstat: illegal argument -- projlist

can anybody suggest how to proceed.

Thanks in advance

The -j option requires a *list* of projects not pids. The list is not a file. For more explanation on what is a project, see man project(4).

If you want to check for certain pids, use the '-p' option. Again note that you have to give the pid to check for, not the file containing the pid.
