Contains binary executables.Common linux commands you need to use in single-user modes are located under this directory.Commands used by all the users of the system are located here.For example: ps, ls, ping, grep, cp. 3. Just like /bin, /sbin also contains binary executables.But, the linux commands located under this directory are used typically by system aministrator, for system maintenance purpose.For example: iptables, reboot, fdisk, ifconfig, swapon 4.
