[solved] Where from comes this user "message+"?
« on: June 29, 2021, 09:19:13 am »
When I run 'top' I see a user "message+" running dbus-daemon.  This pops in and out shortly at each 2-3 seconds.  I don't recall seeing it before.  Googled and couldn't find any answers.

Anybody knows where this user message+ comes from, or what to run to find out more about it?

Code: [Select]
    PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU  %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND               
    ...
   1499 message+  20   0    8884   5824   3904 S   0.3   0.0   0:16.91 dbus-daemon           
    ...

OS Kubuntu 20.04 LTS.

I expect that "+" means that it's truncated for display space, and that this is the "messagebus" user.

To show a longer field for the username you can use a custom format for the 'ps' command, e.g.:

ps ax o user:16,pid,pcpu,pmem,vsz,rss,stat,start_time,time,cmd

Message+ is messagebus indeed, thank you!   :)
