Htop.

or in terminal

Code:
ps -ef | grep (name of process you are trying to see goes here)
Not sure. Since your post is lacking any info to work on for a member to respond to. At least for me.

You might want to download below pdf book and read at your leisure also.

Do you mean the jobs command? If you run man bash and search for JOB CONTROL that will give more info.

You may have to install Htop but it does the job of telling you WHAT ALL is running. It is an excellent app.and I would be lost without it at times.
