How do I see the progress of a dd?

Chris Burton

To view the current position of a dd you need to send signal SIGUSR1

You can either find the pid of dd and send the signal with

kill -SIGUSR1 <PID>

Or if you are only running one dd on the system you can send to all dd processes with

killall -SIGUSR1 dd
