Thanks to Frank. I have changed the value of kern.ps_showallprocs to 1 and its 
listing all processes now. I used the following command 

sysctl kern.ps_showallprocs=1

Will the value change back to zero once the server is rebooted. If yes, is 
there any way to make the changes permanently. I added the following line 
into /boot/loader.conf, but that didn't help.

Any help is much appreciated.
