top output for six processes with the same name, output changed from column to row

Hi,

I have a system under test, and I use a script that does a ps.
The output, is in the following format, it's basically the timestamp, followed by the rss and vsize.

PHP Code:
09:03:57 68404 183656 68312 181944 69860 217360 67536 182564 69072 183172 69032 199276

My question is this...how do I do the same, but for top,
I really want to track the cpu usage of these 6 processes with the same name, and spit them to a file, every 30s, in the same format as above, i.e. timestamp process1CPU process2CPU process3CPU process4CPU process5CPU process6CP

I've tried the following, but it just hangs at the part where it tries to output the results from top, maybe its because it comes out in a column? I need it in row format, so I can easily import to Excel and analyse.

Here's the script
PHP Code:
#!/bin/bash

outputFile=topOutput_`uname -n`
echo 
"Output: " $outputFile

for ((;;)); do
echo 
"for loop";

# X=`top | grep --line-buffered softms | awk '{print $6}'`;
# echo "X: "$X;

echo "currentTime...";
currentTime=`date | awk '{print $4}'`;
echo 
"currentTime: "$currentTime;

echo 
"To file: ";
echo 
$currentTime $X >> $outputFile;

echo 
"foo..."
top grep --line-buffered softms awk '{print $6}'

echo "foo: " $foo
sleep 30s
;

done 
What am I doing wrong? is there an alternative way of achieving this goal?
This is what I'm trying to get as output
PHP Code:
Time       p1cpu%  p2cpu%   p3cpu%  p4cpu%  p5cpu%  p6cpu%  
09:00:00 65          65          65          65          65          65

:02:30 65          65          65          65          65          65          
etc

Hi.

The Linux version of top can be set to iterate once in a batch mode with:
Code:
top -n1 -b

perhaps a look at your local man page will help (if top is the problem) ... cheers, drl

try this

#!/bin/bash

outputFile=topOutput_`uname -n`
echo "Output: " $outputFile

for ((;;));
do
(date +%T | tr "\n" " " && ps -A ux | sort -rn -k 3 | awk 'NR<6 && $3!="%CPU"{printf "%s ",$3} END {printf "\n"}') >> $outputFile
sleep 30
done

This is almost exactly what I'm looking for, but when I run it I get this instead...
