I can't find the right command. I want to view the processes that I'm currently running.

ps has -U and -u options for that.

From man ps:

-U userlist

Select by real user ID (RUID) or name. It selects the processes whose real user name or ID is in the userlist list. The real user ID identifies the user who created the process, see getuid(2).

-u userlist

Select by effective user ID (EUID) or name. This selects the processes whose effective user name or ID is in userlist.


You can use top command to get real time stats of your running processes on Linux System. Also you can use ps -elf command to get a snapshot of process statistics.
