Overview

In order to work with a computer, you run programs. A running program is known as a process. Once booted, a typical Linux system runs dozens of processes, even before a single user has logged in. Understanding how these processes relate to one another and how to learn about the processes on your system will help you manage them if problems arise. These problems usually boil down to poor performance caused by processes consuming too much CPU time or other system resources. In order to cope with these problems, you may need to scale back a running process's demands for resources or terminate it altogether. A variety of tools help you accomplish these tasks.
