Note: By default it'll only show processes you own. You should switch it to show all processes in the View menu. This is not a valid answer. OP is asking for a list "corresponding to the "Services" interface in Windows".

How to View All Running Apps & Processes in Mac OS X

The Activity Monitor and top simply show the currently running processes. A process like Chrome and a service like sshd are very different and the essence of the question. Try ps -ef on the command line. There must be some internal API for this, and I wonder if it's just not documented by accident or intentionally hidden and thus unsafe to use.

Though, I only knew about the pbs command, and I may try reading the plist instead and fallback to the cmd if the former fails in a future OS version , so thanks for mentioning that. I had tried disassembling pbs with Hopper but was unsuccessful to find anything relevant to my question. Trust me, this is what the OS does.

There is no public API. You can disassembly AppKit and see it with your own eyes this is what I did. Thanks to caching it's efficient.
