10.6: See more process info in top
Authored by: phunkjay on Oct 22, '09 02:59:27AM

When i run TOP i sometimes have more processes than fit into the window (even if i resize)

Anyone know how i can see all TOP processes ? (scroll, next page etc ?)

Thanks !

Run 'man top' and check out the -l (as in 'logging') option.

'top -l 0' may do what you want.

Also you can use '<' and '>' to change the focus of which column is sorted. It starts out with %CPU. Hitting '>' once takes the focus right, so the output is sorted on %MEM usage. It can be useful to sort by command name too, so I hope this helps.

I wanted to try your <> tip... but cannot get it to work. I need to use type o, and then type the name of the field. Am I missing something?
