Hello,

i got an notiffication on high PPS on my server and in the process list from that time i seen more than hundred of processes like:

nobody 21422 0.0 0.2 155104 45764 ? S 20:57 0:00 \_ /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start
nobody 21424 0.0 0.2 153544 44248 ? S 20:57 0:00 \_ /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start

they have in common "\_ /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start"

i was curious if i can anyhow discover real path to the php script/s that was executed?
