Systemmonitor does not show processes other than those owned by the current user.

When I start system-monitor I only see processes owned by me.

There is a group systemd-journal which allows a user in that group to access all logs. Is there a similar group to allow a user of system-monitor to see all processes.

Is there are command that will list all groups defined.

Yes. Just use cat /etc/group to get a list of all groups.

Thanks sideburns.

I have looked at the contents of /etc/group and none of the groups in it have names that look as if they are sysmon related. Is there a place where the meanings of these groups are documented?

To see processes owned by all users in gnome-system-monitor, you don't need to belong to any specific group. You simply click on the menu button (has the 3 stacked horizontal bars icon) in the top right corner (to the left of the exit X) and select "All Processes". This setting will persist when you open future sessions of gnome-system-monitor.
