Viewing what is running on the server

Here is how to view what is running on the server along with the resources each process is using

If you want to view what is currently running on your Linux server you can call the following command;

top

This lets you see every process that is running and see at a glance what is roughly consuming the most resources on your machine.

There are better tools for digging into this information but top will give you a good quick overview.

Once top is running type q to quit it.

If you want to read up more on top you can read the man page by typing man top in your terminal.
