Title: How to list PIDs (procesees) for one CPU core only?

Use ps -eLF to list PIDs by CPU core number

The command ps -eLF will list PIDs by CPU core number. Then a script can filter the results to a specific core number.

Create a file called ~/bin/one-cpu-pids and mark it as executable using chmod a+x ~/bin/one-cpu-pids. Copy the following text into the file and save it:

#!/bin/bash

# NAME: one-cpu-pids
# PATH: /home/$USER/bin
# DESC: List pids running under one cpu core.
# CALL: one-cpu-pids CPUnumber
# DATE: Created Aug 27, 2017.
# NOTE: CPU number passed is ones based and converted to zero based.


if [[ $# -ne 1 ]]; then
    echo 'One argument required for CPU number, e.g. "1" or "8"'
    exit 1
fi

ZeroCPU=$1
let ZeroCPU--

ps -eLF | head -n 1 # Get heading
ps -eLF | awk -v a="$ZeroCPU" '$9 == a {print;}'

What the output looks like

Here is what the output looks like:
