Did you try searching for the process id shown in oralce view V$process over the o/s? If the instance is started, PMON must be up and be visible!
I have two database instances running on fedora 12 for my test purposes but I have a strange problem. when I run ps -ef | grep pmon I don't see any pmon running even though both of the databases are up and running? but when I run select PID, Program from v$process from sqlplus I can see that pmon is running. can someone tell me why i don't see pmon as running process when I do ps -ef?
