Re: Top for TRU64

Normally, the collect command is used to display performance data, you can use for example:

collect -sp -S

But it only sorts by cpu usage, not by memmory usage.

Re: Top for TRU64

The top command is not part of the Tru64 UNIX operating system, but it is distributed as freeware on the Tru64 UNIX Associated Products CD-ROM (APCD). The top command lists the processes with the highest CPU percentages.

Also you can look into sar, dxsysinfo, and sys_check commands to monitor the various systems activity such as paging, activity by any specifi process, memory usuage, device and file-system activities.
