    • Linux systems assign a unique process identification number to every process and application.
  • User — The user that executed the process on the database.

  • Host — The client’s hostname and the port from which the process executed. For example, Host:0000

  • db — The database on which the process runs.

    • This column displays NULL if the process does not run on a database.
  • Command — The type of command that the system issued to the database.

  • Time — The time, in seconds, that the process has remained in its current state.

  • State — The action, state, or event of the process.

  • Info — The text of the statement that the process currently executes.

    • If the process does not execute a statement, this column displays NULL.
