Re: Top command output

Shalom,

A little reading on the topic:
http://docs.hp.com/en/B2355-90950/ch07s04.html

Take a look also at the man page. Man pages in HP-UX are very, very good.

There is a script in there that uses top command to gather output to a file and report.

Re: Top command output

Hi gany59

Use man command for more help.
You can also refer glance command.

Re: Top command output

just a remark,
top cpu usage is not a precise measure.
use glance.
top can tell a process is using 100% when no cpu is used or the contrary as it is a sample on which process is running at tic time.
