What jobs are running in Linux PID?

Last Modified: 2014-11-29
I have certain PID's that are consuming memory on my VPS server and I need to  find out the jobs or applications that are part of that PID.

I have used strace -p [PID] but there are too many lines of code and they repeat  themselves.

Is there a way to  find out what applications/jobs are running and consuming the resources.  If not, what other suggestions do you have?
