Windows task manager vs ps

Posted By on February 2, 2010

So, I was fiddling with java stuff at work the other day, and was struck by just how useless windows task manager is.

When running several:

java -jar something.jar

GNU ps actually shows which is which, because it includes the name of the jar file.

Windows just shows javaw.exe for all of them, so you don’t know what you’re killing.
