Very good ps aux overview can be found on Linode website.
grep stands for global regular expression print
grep by default is case sensitive. Add
-i to make it case insensitive.
ps aux | grep -i "robert" | grep -i "vscode" – by such piping you can narrow down the search step by step.
If kill does not then add
kill -9 <pid> (source).
history | grep “git commit” | grep “something”
ps aux | grep -i "...be.t" – simple pattern match.
ps aux | grep -P -i "^weekend" – add -P to get perl compatible regular expressions to work
ps aux | grep -i '^weekend.*product' – lines that start with weekend and contains word product.
To see your proccesses then
ps ux is enough.
