Subject: limit number of process in top with non-interactive mode
Top command in Linux is allowing to control the number of processes only
interactive mode. I want to control the number of processes in
mode. Is there any other version of top available ? Or is there a way to
the current version itself?
Note: Manual page for top is inappropriate with the command.
For example, "top 10" reports an improper use of command though it is
according to the man page.
[Actually this is asked by one of my colleague, asking here as I am out
-- redhat-list mailing list unsubscribe mailto:email@example.com?subject=subscribe https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/redhat-list If you are looking to do it non-interactively, just add a couple more lines to your batch job to get the desired outcome. I am not the best scripter, but something like: Top -b -n 1 > /tmp/top.txt Head -n 22 /tmp/top.txt > /tmp/top2.txt This gives me all the top header info and the first 10 processes. I know it's not pretty, but you get the idea.
