comment how to monitor select processes on centos 5.x host?
Worse than that - VMWare Server 1.0.8. We know that we're WAY out of support and are working to get to something more modern (probably CentOS 6 w/ KVM for financial reasons). Lots of barriers in the way, sadly, but we're slowly getting there.

comment how to monitor select processes on centos 5.x host?
I'm really only interested in watching the VM processes themselves, those started with the 'vmware-vmx' command. The real kicker is that neither top nor htop will show me the actual names of the vms (or rather, the .vmx argument to the vmware-vmx command used to start the vm) since that will tell me which vms are most active. As it is, I have to write the list of PIDs on a piece of paper and then run top to see who's doing what. Perhaps I should hack top.c to do what I want! :)
