Perhaps you can open a huge GUI window, set it to a very small font and run 
TOP in that window and see more of the current processes. I doubt you can
get a window big enough to see 'em all. Also, type "f" into top to see
a list of other options you can use. you can, for example, type "fo"
to have an additional column for swap usage of each process shown.
