The ps command in Linux is used to monitor all the currently running activities along with USER, PID, %CPU, %MEM, VSZ, RSS, TTY, STAT, START, TIME, COMMAND. It helps system administrators to find the PID (processes identifier) of all the running processes in order to monitor and troubleshoot the system.
