It depends on which UNIX you are using...
"ps aux" would be the BSD syntax -- "a" for "all processes", "u" for "user format, "x" for lifting the "must have a tty" restriction
"ps -ef" would be the Unix98 syntax -- "-e" for selecting all processes, "-f" for full-format listing.
If I remember correctly : FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD would support the BSD syntax only, while many other distributions would support both types of syntaxes.

The top command is, like ps, used to display running processes, but it updates its display every few seconds.
I would say go ahead with # ps - a
