I need to check which processes are running on a Windows Server instance, I'm looking for something similar to top or ps -aux, but I'm only finding references to use Task Manager with GUI.

What is the best way to check the running processes via command line in a Windows Server machine?

I think you're looking for tasklist, available from Windows XP and 'til this day.
