It looks as if you have done
ssh to the remote server and run the ps command

Your question does not explain why you have not found your command satisfactory now how you chose those details for the command.

The backticks look like a mistake. What are they for?

The `` is for execution of the contents between the ``. The $() is the more modern bash equivalent.

$ export TEMP=`echo "hello"`
$ echo $TEMP

same as

$ export TEMP=$(echo "hello")
$ echo $TEMP
