LSLOCKS(8)                System Administration               LSLOCKS(8)

NAME         top

       lslocks - list local system locks

SYNOPSIS         top

       lslocks [options]

DESCRIPTION         top

       lslocks lists information about all the currently held file locks
       in a Linux system.

       Note that lslocks also lists OFD (Open File Description) locks,
       these locks are not associated with any process (PID is -1). OFD
       locks are associated with the open file description on which they
       are acquired. This lock type is available since Linux 3.15, see
       fcntl(2) for more details.

OPTIONS         top

       -b, --bytes
           Print the SIZE column in bytes rather than in a
           human-readable format.

       -i, --noinaccessible
           Ignore lock files which are inaccessible for the current
           user.

       -J, --json
           Use JSON output format.

       -n, --noheadings
           Do not print a header line.

       -o, --output list
           Specify which output columns to print. Use --help to get a
           list of all supported columns.

           The default list of columns may be extended if list is
           specified in the format +list (e.g., lslocks -o +BLOCKER).

       --output-all
           Output all available columns.

       -p, --pid pid
           Display only the locks held by the process with this pid.

       -r, --raw
           Use the raw output format.

       -u, --notruncate
           Do not truncate text in columns.

       -V, --version
           Display version information and exit.

       -h, --help
           Display help text and exit.

OUTPUT         top

       COMMAND
           The command name of the process holding the lock.

       PID
           The process ID of the process which holds the lock or -1 for
           OFDLCK.

       TYPE
           The type of lock; can be FLOCK (created with flock(2)), POSIX
           (created with fcntl(2) and lockf(3)) or OFDLCK (created with
           fcntl(2)).

       SIZE
           Size of the locked file.

       MODE
           The lock’s access permissions (read, write). If the process
           is blocked and waiting for the lock, then the mode is
           postfixed with an '*' (asterisk).

       M
           Whether the lock is mandatory; 0 means no (meaning the lock
           is only advisory), 1 means yes. (See fcntl(2).)

       START
           Relative byte offset of the lock.

       END
           Ending offset of the lock.

       PATH
           Full path of the lock. If none is found, or there are no
           permissions to read the path, it will fall back to the
           device’s mountpoint and "..." is appended to the path. The
           path might be truncated; use --notruncate to get the full
           path.

       BLOCKER
           The PID of the process which blocks the lock.

NOTES         top

       The lslocks command is meant to replace the lslk(8) command,
       originally written by Victor A. Abell <abe@purdue.edu> and
       unmaintained since 2001.
