What do you mean by "evaluate askbot"?

Really really general question that has been answered many many times on the internet. Did you look around?

@cgonz31 I'm pretty sure he means see whether it works nicely - could be wrong.

@FranciscoD_ that may be true so especially given the rep of this user, what's the best thing to do: Close the question? Answer it? Other course of action?

Yep. Closing. Too general for this forum.

Maybe you're looking for ps or potentially top but honestly, the best answer to that question is:

You will probably need to install it but it's in the repos: yum install htop

Check this link for pretty much every single way to check the processes...

Summed up, I would say either pstree or htop are the best and most graphically appealing choices.

Some people like ps -aux or use ps -afel.

Askbot is not a robot (in case you thought so)! It's a human-to-human Q & A game. P2P so to say.

The Askbot software isn't that intelligent that it reads your question and tries to find an answer somewhere on the internet.

Mr. Google knows the answer to your question: 1. search result.
