comment Find pid of a certain ssh instance
Use ps axu | grep '[n]NCTR' to avoid the second grep. Better yet, use pgrep.

comment flag to 'ps' command that can filter on arguments?
You mentioned you were keen on using ps and not pgrep so I was working on the assumption that you need some options that pgrep cannot offer. Hence my example which uses pgrep only for narrowing down the PIDs for ps. If you simply need the PIDs, ignore the ps bit.

comment Unix weird directory
@JonathanLeffler I doubt such a directory would be there. The â appears to be a decoding error for quote chars. It shows up often enough as an output of wget -O /dev/null.
