How could one go about viewing all the processes in an ssh session to my (jailbroken)iphone? I'm currently able to ssh in, I have bash installed, core utilities installed, shell-cmds package installed and the system-cmds package installed.

I would have expected the "ps" command to be available from the core-utilities package, but this does not seem to be the case. What am I missing?

I believe the package Cydia package adv-cmds contains a copy of PS
