# 1

Hi !

I would like to collect every minute the data of the "topas" to file.
Under Redhat 9, it's possible to user comand "top" in batch mode ! How is it possible under unix with TOPAS ? Because there is not the parameter " -b"...

example ----> topas > filename.out

but, it doesn't work !

Thanks a million

Do you want to log every thing to file. On HP-UX, top -f will do this. Not sure on AIX. But if you want to just monitor particular one like CPU usage you can use sar or other commands like ps,iostat etc.

sar -u 1 1|grep :|grep -v usr|awk '{print $2+$3}'
