Get CPU/RAM usage per process on Linux

When you’re facing performance issues, it’s always useful to check CPU/MEM usage per process to see if you have an issue with a specific process. For that, you can use ps and some sorting commands.

Tip: You can shrink the results to the first lines by using head

Memory analysis

We’re using the –sort -rss attributes to get the results sorted by RSS in the desc order (use –sort rss for the asc order)

CPU analysis

We’re using the –sort -%cpu attributes to get the results sorted by CPU in the desc order (use –sort %cpu for the asc order)

Then…

Once you got the results, it’s time for you to investigate further and analyze what’s happening with those processes! Good luck!
