NAME

       ipcs - provide information on ipc facilities

SYNOPSIS

       ipcs [-asmq] [-tclup]
       ipcs [-smq] -i id
       ipcs -h

DESCRIPTION

       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

SEE ALSO

       ipcrm(1), ipcmk(1)

CONFORMING TO

       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.
