What processes are running on the Turris router?

You will find the running processes in the console with pstree and below is a list and description of the processes that are present in the router after the basic installation. The list applies to Turris OS 3.6.x . With multiple installed user packages, additional processes may be added, the following list thus includes processes that are on the router running after the basic installation.

This list is not a guarantee that these processes will always be present on the router; each update will tell you which packages are added or uninstalled. However, the processes we publish here will be supported in the long term

You can find a process summary on the router from the command line by using the command pstree CAUTION: Additional running processes are added by installing additional packages.
