Listing The Running Processes
command is used to view a list of running processes. When running it with no parameters, we get something like this:
[choo@simey ~]$ ps PID TTY TIME CMD 1235 pts/3 00:00:00 tcsh 2014 pts/3 00:00:00 ps
The output is divided into the following columns:
- the process ID.
- the "terminal" under which the process is running ('?' if none).
- the CPU-time this process consumed so far (hours, minutes, seconds).
- the command this process is executing.
