Running ‘top’ with ‘Irix mode’ off in batch mode
Hi there, a first poster here.

Can anyone tell me how I can tweak the following top command so that it always runs in Irix/Solaris mode in a batch mode operation?


top -d 3 -n 2 -b -p <PID>
I need 'top' to output a process' CPU usage that had already been divided by the total number of CPUs, and as far as I know, that can be achieved with the 'I' toggle (Irix mode), but it only seems to be available in interactive operation (not in batch operation).

So I was wondering if this is indeed the case, or does anyone know any workaround for what I intended to achieve?


PS. OS: RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.

Have you tried specifying Irix mode in the personal configuration file? (Run top interactively, toggle to Irix mode and save configuration.)
