I am doing my GCSE coursework and I need to find out how a professional has used the top command along with the ps and kill commands to diagnose a misbehaving system.

Have you read the man pages for each command? The ps command provides a snapshot of active processes. kill sends a signal to a specific process. Since kill uses the PID of a process the way to find it is from ps.

In general, the kill command is intended to send a signal to the process. By default, if we do not specify which signal to send, a signal SIGTERM (from the word termination) is sent. SIGTERM indicates to the process that it is necessary to terminate. Here and in my blog https://assignment.essayshark.com/blog/c-pr...er-from-1-to-5/ you can read more about these commands.
