 acctail nicely runs in a MultiTail window (in which it can be filtered, merged, and much more).
 atop by AT Computing uses the same technique for obtaining resource-information for each individual process as acctail does. By using BSD accounting also processes are shown which live very shortly (often missed by the regular '(GNU) top' utility).
