I don't know if anyone else uses this combination as much as I do, but I thought I'd suggest it.
Perhaps psg [whatver]?
@oschrenk do you know if there's a way to colorize or cleanup the output?
I have never used this one :)
If I understand correctly, ps -aef lists the uid, pid, parent pid, recent CPU usage, process start time, controlling tty, elapsed CPU usage, and the associated command for all the active processes.
A problem with grepping through the output is that the column headers aren’t visible anymore.
