 A Quick Start for Lsof

Well written guide to using lsof (list of open files). lsof is a wonderful tool and can save a lot of time if you have it when you need it. If you have never used lsof get a copy and check out this guide.

"Agreed, the lsof man page is dense and lsof has a plethora of options. There are examples, but the manual page format buries them at the end. How does one get started with lsof? This file is an attempt to answer that question. It plunges immediately into examples of lsof use to solve problems that involve looking at the open files of Unix processes."
