It may depend on what you mean by Sybase.  For ASE, the executable name is sybase.  I do not know if ASA or others are the same or note.

For ASE the executable name is not sybase. It is probably run by a sybase user, but the executable is "dataserver".

You will see one dataserver process per ASE engine per ASE instance. There will usually also be a backupserver process, and while backups are running, two or more sybmultbuf processes.

For Sybase IQ the process name depends on the version, but it probably starts with "asiq".

Joe is correct (the process is dataserver but the user is (usually) sybase).  That's what I get for answering from memory and not double-checking.

Sorry for the misinformation.

It would be unusual, but the executable name for ASE can also be "diagserver"  (tech support will sometimes ask for a server to be run using this binary in the hopes of generating more diagnostics and/or a stack trace that hasn't been mucked up by the FBO (feedback optimization) compiler.

And, of course, ultimately the binary could be renamed to anything and still be used.

On NT, the binaries are "sqlsrvr.exe" and  "diagsrvr.exe"
