  • Search for this UUID in the ps output :

    # ps auxwww | grep prl_vm_app | grep ba1146fc-64d5-3943-a4c0-2610b428ede2
    root      959275  7.9  2.9 136447856 1466004 ?   Sl   Oct07 195:18 /usr/lib64/parallels-server/prl_vm_app --uuid {ba1146fc-64d5-3943-a4c0-2610b428ede2} --dir-uuid {3e9b9b89-f7af-42f9-b363-ecf1bdd307fd} --mode ps
