Bash Shell scripting help!


What options should I use when I'm using the sort command to sort the top 5 CPU processes (ps -eo user,pid,ppid,%cpu,%mem,fname | sort ??? | head -5) showing max to min usage?

Thanks for your help!!

Well I found you can get rid of sort as ps has this option:

ps k-%cpu -eo user,pid,ppid,%cpu,%mem,fname | head -5

Don't forget to mark as SOLVED if your happy with the solution.
