powershell equivalent of linux ‘ps -aux | sort -k3n’

I’m not entirely sure how I managed to not find out about Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfProc_Process before now. I think the ‘sort -k3n’ does a sort by CPU-usage, but I’m sure there’s a better way of doing it than that.

gwmi Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfProc_Process -ComputerName $ComputerName | 
  Sort-Object -Property PercentProcessorTime -desc | 
  select idprocess, name, IODataBytesPersec, PercentPrivilegedTime,PercentProcessorTime, PercentUserTime, workingset | 
  Select-Object -first 11 | 
  ft -AutoSize

gives:

idprocess name      IODataBytesPersec PercentPrivilegedTime PercentProcessorTime PercentUserTime workingset
