Pinned topic PS command - TIME column is 00:00:00

‏2013-05-05T12:34:18Z |

Hi,

I am running the following command:

ps -efk -o "user pid ppid pcpu pmem stime time vsz rssize args"

 

But TIME column is always 00:00:00 . The AIX Actual version is 6.1.8.0 

When I run it on another server that I have with version 6.1.0.0, the output is valid.

 

 

Regards,

Amit

    I get similar results and submit that this is actually a normal response. If I dump the results to a file, I notice that not all entries are 00:00:00 - perhaps ps is trying to sort by CPU time or similar? I can confirm it as happening here on a 6.1.0.0 production box in an enterprise environment. I don't know wheter this is a bug or a feature ;)

    If not all enteries are 00:00:00 than it is ok.

    It is a bug in version 6.1.8.0 

    After we installed SP2 it was resolved.
