 Who Has Which Files

On Lamp tells us about finding open files.

"If you go to a command prompt and type "fstat," you'll see a list of all the active files on the system. This list can be very long, as each process probably has several files open. My laptop, running an assortment of desktop programs, has about 400 open files. A friend's small Web server runs about 9,000 open files, while some heavily used Web servers have about 30,000 files open."
