Memory and CPU utilization process

Hi,

I need to check which process in linux is taking high memory and which process is taking high cpu usage.

Regards,
Bash
# 2  
Probably with top or ps? Read the manpage for the options.

I check with top, but i want that whatever process is currently running i want from highest CPU and memory utilization to lowest that will show all process.

Regards,
Bash

Use the following command:

ps -eo pcpu,%mem,cmd|sort -k2 -r

It gives the %cpu,%memory utilization of the processes in order of memory usage from highest to lowest.

Vinod.
