Unix ps -a

Hello!
If I do "ps -a" in unix I can see a number of processes. Are all these process running in my unix account or does these belong to other users. Because I can see process that I started and I also see process that unix may have started or other users may have started, thats why I want to make sure that the ps command returns only process in my account.
Thank you for all the help in advance:-)

Hi atwork2003,

I believe if you use:

ps U username

Where username is your unix username, then it will show just the processes for your account.

Good Luck!
