Cron the top command

Hi Greetings!!!!!
I want to cron the top command 1 hour once and need to save the file in /home/dm.
i am using redhat linux.

Try something like this

Code:
0 * * * *  top -b -n 1 > /home/dm/filename

. You can also try the absolute path of top command.

Code:
type top
top is hashed (/usr/bin/top)
