viewing top


hi,

I was having problems using top, so that i can see ALL the system processes that are running. If I am running 200 processes, there is no way i can get them all on the terminal window, no matter how large i make it.
I took a look through the man page and i couldn't really find anything about it.

Is there a solution to this?

You can use htop instead of top

You can try top in batch mode, saving a single snapshot into a file
Code:
top -b -n1 > top.log
or try the ps command customizing the output with option -o.

wow, that's great - thanks a lot!

they should probably include all the flags that top can use in the man page...
