enter your jail name:


Voila, you have only processes within that specific jail listed. To show up processes from all jails, instead of typing in name of the jail simply type in + sign.

Now that I better think about it, to learn more about top:

man 1 top

FreeBSD man pages are also far better than Linux ones ;-)
