Can someone tell me how I would make a process tree with the following data:

  • operating system -

    I only have time for a short answer at the moment.

    You need to sort by the PPID parent process ID first, so that you can trace each process back through its parents. Everything traces back to 0 eventually.

    Example: Process 6017's parent is 6003. 6003's parent is 1. 1's parent is 0.

    The details of how you do that - a spreadsheet or databse or graphing program - will be up to you, but the end result is you writing a tree that starts with PID 0, which branches to PIDs 1 and 2, then PID 1 branches to 4075, 6003, etc, while PID 2 branches to 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.

    I just got those rough results by pasting your table into a spreadsheet, and sorting by PPID, then PID, but you'll need to do more shaping than that to make it into a tree.
