I’m using the
screen multiplexer tool on the command shell and open a lot of screens. I then forget which process ID associates with which task.
I would like to set a name for a screen but can’t find an option in the manpage.
Currently, listing the screens looks like this:
There are screens on: 5422.pts-1.aws1 (Detached) 5448.pts-1.aws1 (Detached) 5027.pts-1.aws1 (Detached) 3 Sockets in /var/run/screen/S-sb.
And I would like to see something like this:
There are screens on: 5422.logCleanWorker (Detached) 5448.overNightLongTask(Detached) 5027.databaseOverNightLongTask (Detached) 3 Sockets in /var/run/screen/S-sb.
How can I do this?
To start a new session
screen -S your_session_name
To rename an existing session
Ctrl+a, : sessionname YOUR_SESSION_NAME Enter
You must be inside the session
