I am using customized OpenWRT, in which no option works for the ps command except w.

When I enter ps w, it’s showing all the running processes, but if I type, for example, ps w | grep kkkk it’s showing an output 4414 (username) 1032 R grep kkkk.

Obviously this process doesn't exist.

Can anybody please explain this?

Actually, I wanted to get the list of daemon processes running in OpenWRT.


It is showing you the grep kkkk process that you are running!
