View processes running via telnet

Hello, I am extremely new to the Linux world.  I am not in the office right now and I am trying to see if there is a way to find out if a automated process (auto compile when there is a code check-in) is stuck or is just on standby.  Is there a way to see the processes via telent?  Thanks in advance!

is used to display the top processes using the CPU.

lists the processes running.

Type top --help or ps --help for more information - they have a wide variety of options to narrow things down for you.

Also, you can type
ps -ax | grep ProcessToFind
to search for a specific process.

Thanks.  I wasn't being patient enough.  I was able to exit out of, "top".
