Prstat Cron Schedule

Hi ,

I am trying to set up a cron job for getting the prstats for every 10 minutes to a log file.

prstat -s cpu -n 20 > a.txt

The issue is when i try to execute this command, a.txt is filling up with data for every second which is not i wanted.I just need top 20 processes for every 10 minues. How to get out of the session immediately after getting top 20 processes in the file and start the session again after 10 minues?

Could you please advise?
