  • Tested in bash on AIX & Linux, used for WAS versions 6.0 & up. Sorts by node name. Useful when you have vertically-stacked instances of WAS/Portal. Cuts out all the classpath/optional parameter clutter that makes a simple "ps -ef | grep java" so difficult to sort through. Show Sample Output

    ps -ef | grep [j]ava | awk -F ' ' ' { print $1," ",$2,"\t",$(NF-2),"\t",$(NF-1),"\t",$NF } ' | sort -k4

diff files while disregarding indentation and trailing white space
**NOTE** Tekhne's alternative is much more succinct and its output conforms to the files actual contents rather than with white space removed My command on the other hand uses bash process substitution (and "Minimal" Perl), instead of files, to first remove leading and trailing white space from lines, before diff'ing the streams. Very useful when differences in indentation, such as in programming source code files, may be irrelevant
