    Yogesh, whenever i have doubt, i’m always refering this document. Now i have a doubt in open files. In linux, using lsof command to find the open files PID to kill, but in solaris how it possible? fuser -cu doesn’t showing PID,running process, memory consuming.
    suggest the command equal to lsof, Thanks for this article.

    I do use this if i have to know all the openfiles and corresponding pids related to a filesystem

     # /usr/bin/pfiles `/usr/sbin/fuser -c /data  2>/dev/null` | /usr/bin/egrep ‘^[0-9]|/data’

    how it works?

    fuser -c will list all the PIDs which are using the /data, and “2> /dev/null ” moves any errors or warning to /dev/null.  the output of fuser will be passed to pfiles ( the command used to find openfiles related a specific process), and from the output we are filtering only openfiles related to data and the lines which are having PID.
