How can I exclude Chrome/Firefox processes from top command output? It's just too messy with them in there, and it isn't important for me to see them there.
top is a compiled program, you'd need to modify the source code. Using
ps it's easily achieved by using:
ps aux | grep --invert-match firefox
to exclude firefox.
Note: I don't have Chrome, so don't know what the process name is but adding
| grep --invert-match chrome at the end of the above command should accomplish both if and only if Chrome's process name is
chrome (educated guess)
The top command is very command-line friendly. Try launching top like this:
top | grep -v firefox
