OS X pgrep command

You can use the OS X pgrep command to list all of the process IDs for an application, such as Safari.
$ pgrep Safari
51313
78209
95848
95874

If you wish to see the newest, i.e., the most recently started one, of those processes, you can use the -n option.

$ pgrep -n Safari
95874

You can use the -l option to viewer longer information on the processes, i.e, process names as well as PIDs.

$ pgrep -l Safari
51313 Safari
78209 SafariNotificat
95848 com.apple.Safar
95874 com.apple.Safar

If you combine the -l option with the -f option, you will see even more information for the process that may be helpful when the process name is truncated.

$ pgrep -lfn Safari
95874 /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/SafariServices.framework/Versions/A/XPCS
ervices/com.apple.SafariServices.xpc/Contents/MacOS/com.apple.SafariServices
