Use pstree instead of ps

pstree -alp

This magic incantation displays the process list as a tree, showing process IDs (-p) and arguments (-a), on lines long enough to fully show all the arguments (-l).
Make it part of your toolbox!

You can remember this command via the phrase process-tree-Alps! You're welcome!
