check resources

Hi all

I would like to check my production machine and find out which application is using up the resources of the Unix machine, is there a way to display individual applications that are running and the percentage of resources they are taking up?

Try the "process status" command: ps

Doing a man ps might help. Typical command line flags are:
  • ps -ef
  • ps -aux

... depending on system used.

use can also use top to display applications using top processes

if your server does to have top installed you can download the top from www.sunfreeware.com that if you are using sun solaris if not you could download one from your verdure
