To view current process use the pc command:
ps ps aux | less ps aux | grep "process-name" ps aux | grep "httpd" ps alx | grep "mysqld"
Example options include:
- -aux — list all running processes (by all users with some information).
- -a — list all processes from all users.
- -u — list more information including user names, %cpu usage, and %mem usage et cetera.
- -x — list processes without controlling terminals.
- -l — display different information including UID and nice value.
- –forest — this makes it easier to see the process hierarchy, which will give you an indication of how the various processes on your system interrelate (although you should also try pstree).
