hi Prasanna ,

Put this is cron :
testing:/#more /opt/topscript
echo ====================================== >>/tmp/topout
top -f /tmp/topout
you will get the o/p colleected in /tmp/topout , or which ever u specify

Hi,

Take all output into a file using

top -f top.out

Shalom,

You might want to look at the ps command

Example script. Look at the ps section for HP-UX

of course top doesn't show you *all* processes.

One might appeare something broadly similar to the top output with ps. Try the following for example:

UNIX95= ps -eo tty,pid,user,pri,nice,vsz,sz,state,time,pcpu,comm | sed 1d | sort -nr -k 10,10

redirect to a file as appropriate... see the man page for ps to understand all the columns

You can use lsof tool also to know the processes .
