    Your description is not communicative enough.
    So, for instance "ps" is a utility, and you seem to be saying that something is invoking ps, that it suddenly pops up and displays current running processes.
    If that's not what is happening, then you're not describing your situation well.

    If you're looking for resource usage by processes, you might want to try using top or one of its derivatives (like htop) instead.

    Possibly, you could install some Linux system monitoring tools, such as “nmon” or “collectl” – Leap 15.1 information as follows:
    Information for package nmon:
    Repository     : Haupt-Repository      
    Name           : nmon                  
    Version        : 16g-lp151.2.3         
    Arch           : x86_64                
    Vendor         : openSUSE              
    Installed Size : 199.0 KiB             
    Installed      : No                    
    Status         : not installed         
    Source package : nmon-16g-lp151.2.3.src
    Summary        : Performance Monitor   
    Description    :                       
        This systems administrator, tuner, benchmark tool gives you a huge amount of
        important performance information in one go. It can output the data in two ways
        1. On screen (console, telnet, VNC, putty or X Windows) using curses for low
           CPU impact which is updated once every two seconds. You hit single characters
           on you keyboard to enable/disable the various sorts of data.
           * You can display the CPU, memory, network, disks (mini graphs or numbers),
             file systems, NFS, top processes, resources (Linux version & processors)
             and on Power micro-partition information.
        2. Save the data to a comma separated file for analysis and longer term data
           * Use this together with nmon Analyser Excel 2000 spreadsheet, which loads
             the nmon output file and automatically creates dozens of graphs ready for
             you to study or write performance reports.
           * Filter this data, add it to a rrd database (using an excellent freely
             available utility called rrdtool). This graphs the data to .gif or .png
             files plus generates the webpage .html file and you can then put the
             graphs directly on a website automatically on AIX with no need of a
             Windows based machine.
           * Directly put the data into a rrd database or other database for your own
    Information for package collectl:
    Repository     : Haupt-Repository
    Name           : collectl
    Version        : 4.1.3-lp151.4.1
    Arch           : noarch
    Vendor         : openSUSE
    Installed Size : 1.5 MiB
    Installed      : No
    Status         : not installed
    Source package : collectl-4.1.3-lp151.4.1.src
    Summary        : Collects data that describes the current system status
    Description    :
        Unlike most monitoring tools that either focus on a small set of
        statistics, format their output in only one way, run either
        interatively or as a daemon but not both, collectl tries to do it all.
