ipcs - provide information on ipc facilities
ipcs [-asmq] [-tclup]
ipcs [-smq] -i id
ipcs provides information on the ipc facilities for which the calling process has read access.
The -i option allows a specific resource id to be specified. Only information on this id will be printed.
Resources may be specified as follows:
-m shared memory segments -q message queues -s semaphore arrays -a all (this is the default) The output format may be specified as follows: -t time -p pid -c creator -l limits -u summary
The Linux ipcs utility is not fully compatible to the POSIX ipcs utility. The Linux version does not support the -b and -o options, but does support the -l and -u options not defined by POSIX. The portable application shall not use the -a, -b, -o, -l, and -u options.
