I am doing a rather large dd and its being a long time (over 30minutes) so far.
How can i find the status of dd ?
at hsgr someone is telling me: KILL KILL KILL
searching through dd manual page, i came up with:
Sending a USR1 signal to a running ‘dd’ process makes it print I/O statistics to standard error and then resume copying.
# kill -USR1 5579
on the dd terminal:
7626752+0 records in
7626752+0 records out
3904897024 bytes (3,9 GB) copied, 2442,27 s, 1,6 MB/s
for more info
man 7 signal
