any software that monitors resource usage? similar to ps aux every second


HI guys, I've been doing ps aux till I karpal tunneled .
Is there like a software that monitors resource usage which can sort of simulate doing ps aux every second or so?

And i need to access it via SSH. I don't think there is any huh?

http://spamassassin.apache.org/doc/spamd.html - spamd is part of SpamAssassin - do you have it installed?

http://www.benzedrine.cx/relaydb.html - tells you how to use it.

My 2 cents of information on it .

$ssh nitin@remoteserver top
password : <My Password >

This would give you the output of the top command on the remote server without logging in or out . Also the top command will keep to run till u kill it by CTRL + c or q.

Don't know what distro you're using but on Fedora there's the "ntsysv" command that pops up a gui that lets you decide what starts at boot. I always unselect the spamassasin option.
