how to get process list?

Recommended Posts

Running redhat on my server. Works great, but I have to reboot once a week because the load average (reported from uptime) exceeds 100, and the whole system grinds to a hault.

Is there a command to give the complete process list and how much resources each process is using?

top might be a little too intense in the middle of system problems -- but the man did suggest ps. Ps can provide a snapshot without the constant refreshing -- which should show me what I need to see.

thanks for the help!

If top is too intense you really do have systerm problems. But yeah, ps aux will give you a quick overall view.

nine days and counting...

The system jumped to 25.93 for a few minutes and I think I finally figured out what's doing it. One site I host is doing a bunch of GDLib thumbnails on the fly. That might do it -- but ps isn't very helpful in determining if my hunch is right.

Not sure as to the reason for bumping a 2 month old thread, but we'll go with it.

I've never used vmstat, but something tells me it's a product related to vmware. If the system load is exceeding 100, something tells me that you really, really don't want to use anything with VMs.
