Create system_performance file

Hello all,
I try to create a system monitor file using the top command. If I use : top -b -n 1 >>myfile.dat ; the data is sored in a continues way and it very difficult to read it. Is there a way to store it in myfile.dat but as the same way as if it was displayed on a normal terminal, like a table and stuff..
Thx a lot. I need help with this.

You could have it over-write the file, but then you would have only the results for the most recent "top" command...

I just tried, and reading the file is not very dificult.

Could you please explain what data you are interested in collecting? And how precisely you want the output formatted? Maybe give an example?
