Question Monitoring Active processes


I was wondering if there is a way to monitor which processes are running. I have the game server program which I launch at startup but can't verify if its running or not. The only way I can tell is if I try to connect from the client software and if i can't connect, then I assume that it's not running. I tried using the ps command but it does'nt show up there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

HW

As twilli said, top does the trick ...

However, so should ps :}

Maybe you just need to use some
parameters? For instance, if you're loged
in as john_doe, a simple 'ps ' won't show
you any daemons that are being run by
root or any other system users.

Try a 'ps -A', if it's too much output
pipe it through grep and search for the
name of the server process 'ps -A | grep <server>'

Cheers,
Tink
