This is funny, I restarted the whole system since my last mail and now I cannot reproduce the issue. The process shows up in both the host and the jail.

When I had the issue I also tried the ps aux without grep but did not see the process too. Actually the jail is very thin, so this could be overseen. Following man(1) the -p switch does apply a filter by process id, I guess the process should have been visible also without?

Kind regards,
