    We are running Red Hat 6.0, Kernel 2.2.5-15 SMP. Just recently the ps -aef stopped listing all the active processes, even when logged in as root at the console. A complete shutdown and restart was done, but with no affect. All the command shows are processes with specific TTY, or those started under the specific user ID you are currently logged in as. Is there an environment setting that could be affecting this or do we have a bigger problem?

    try the command: "ps xu -A". This should give you all the info. If it's not in the format you thought it would be, just try putting a capital A instead of the lowercase a.

    Thanks for your response and the suggestion. Within a couple of weeks after we started experiencing this problem, the hard drive failed, so we suspect some bad sectors may have contributed to this problem. I'll keep your suggestion in mind if the problem arises again in the future.
