gives a list of all processes whose names match the string pattern patt.
gives a list of all processes for which property prop has value val.

- SystemProcesses returns a list of ProcessObject objects.
- SystemProcesses returns processes sorted by PID.
- SystemProcesses[All] gives different processes on different computer systems:
Windows all unelevated processes Mac processes only for the current user Linux all non-kernel processes for all users
- In SystemProcesses[prop->val], properties that can be used include:
"PID" process ID "PPID" parent process ID "Memory" memory the process is using "StartTime" date the process was started "RealTime" time since the process started "SystemTime" CPU time spent in kernel space "UserTime" CPU time spent in user space "Threads" number of threads "User" the user the process belongs to "Program" name of the program "Path" full file path of the program "Dataset" dataset of all properties and values
