As stated on question's title, I ran into situations and I need to check something. Here's the condition. When I do top, I see mysql process with ID, say 1234. But, when I execute show processlist from mysql, I don't see process ID 1234. My question is, can I connect those ID from top with ID from mysql. If so, how do I do that?

I hope the question is clear.

No, you can't map a MySQL process ID to a system process (actually, thread) ID.
