Sorting Process Lists


I am trying to show only the processes that use more than 10% of the cpu. I have managed to get it to show the processes in use using:

ps -eo pcpu,cpu,nice,state,cputime,args.

Then I am unsure how to sort this information so it only shows over 10%?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Code:
top -d1 -n1 -b | awk 'BEGIN{d=0};{if(/PID USER/)d=1;if(d==1 && $9>10)print}'

This doesn't seem to work. Is there not a way you can do it using ps command ?

Thanks for the reply.

Hi,

Expanding on what you already have:
Code:
ps -eo pcpu,cpu,nice,state,cputime,args --sort pcpu | awk '$1 >= 10 { print }'
Hope this helps

EDIT: Just to make sure - The --sort pcpu part isn't needed, it is there to show how to use the sort option the ps command has.
