How to use pgrep Command in Linux

Help/Manual

# pgrep -h

Usage:
 pgrep [options] <pattern>

Options:
 -l, --list-name           list PID and process name
 -f, --full                use full process name to match
# man pgrep
       -f, --full
              The pattern is normally only matched against the process name.  When -f is set, the full command line is used.
       -l, --list-name
