Listing active views on Linux and UNIX

You can easily identify active views by using the cleartool lsview command. In the system's response, active views have an asterisk to the left of the view tag.

The views you created in this module, or throughout the tutorial, are located in the /var/tmp/ directory on your local system.

To view all views on your local system, type this command:

ct lsview -host your-computer-name

For example: ct lsview -host goose

The system's response is similar to the following:

dynview /var/tmp/fhembert_dynview.vws
* snapview /var/tmp/fhembert_snapview.vws/.view.stg 

The asterisk next to snapview indicates that the view is still active.

Use the cleartool endview command to stop the view.
