    When I use the ps aux command; the output goes out of my screen (1024x768). How do I make the output to wrap on the next line; so that I can read the complete output.

    Change the text settings in your SSH program. ;)

    I find Courier 9pt works a treat.

    Thanks Rob :eek: ; though I could see more stuff with Courier 9pt/8pt, quite a bit still rolls beyond the screen...any command which will help me to see the complete output when I run ps aux or any other command will be really helpful.

    Thanks!

    Sometimes piping it to file then viewing the file works

    ps aux >>ps.txt

    cat ps.txt

    ps aux | more will wrap the output and pause between screensful. Or ps aux | less to simply wrap the output without pausing between screens.
