    ps question

    When you give the command ps aux, so what does that tell you?
    How does the command ps-el differs from the previous one?
    When you connect to server, and type the command ps aux, what happens?

    Welcome to the forums!

    Code:
    ps aux
    USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
    ef -- To see every process on the system using standard syntax:

    Code:

    Hope that helps!

    Pressing 'Q' will close the man pages for you when you are done.

    top and pgrep

    Two others that are useful would be pgrep and top.

    Code:
    pgrep -lf firefox
