I want to run a command

tar czf - / | ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED] dd of=tarball.tgz

I need to run tar as root.  However, I need to run ssh as user 'id'.

I tried 

sudo tar czf - / | ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED] dd of=tar.tgz

but am unsure if ssh was launched as 'id' or as root.

Any way to be certain that sudo is doing what I want?
