Several utilities can show processes. The one that you probably want is the ps command.

Code:
man ps

Oh, Tinkster, what was wrong with:

Code:
man -k processes
The original thread title was "Linux administrator commands". Were there more commands than just this one at issue? (Even if there were, my first answer would likely still have been 'man -k something'. Sorry.)

Difference between thread title (not actually a qn) and the actual qn posed
